Welcome

African century journal   ISSN 2514-5673

I am a man, nothing human is alien to me‘ – Terence the African.

This peer-reviewed journal was started in 1999 at the dawn of the 21st Century

This is our fourth issue of the relaunched journal.

In this issue we are facing several important issues:   The challenge of US- China relations has the making  of a great novel – but only in terms of the Chinese terms- May you live in interesting times. We have a paper that highlights the scope for serious misunderstanding and also highlights the way US can be enchained in self misunderstanding. Another paper focusses on  the issue of agency – this is a key issue in understanding the issues of the role of divinity in philosophical thought. The ‘new atheists’ are far  from new  – they are  a rerun of epicureanism and they generate some fairly old paradoxes. Finally a paper looks at the way the question ‘can a ‘white’ be a African’ is being dealt with in South African academia as a case study in academic abuse of power against the young African students.
