Title: La via africana alla modernizzazione. Dalla saggezza per il locale e il globale (The African way to modernization. From wisdom for the local and the global)
Author: Baye Ndiaye (ed.)
Abstract: African societies, to enter the modernization as understood in Western societies, seem to be forced to go against the pillars of its culture, against the wisdom of the fathers and against the wisdom of the original culture of the village and its life rhythms.
The authors of the essays, members of an African élite that knows the West very well, focus on how wrong is the vision of traditional Africa observed from the western viewpoint and want to recover the deep culture of African tradition to go into a modernization compatible with it.
