Ubuntu is a philosophy steeped in the history and the sub-conscious of African people. It is an ideal value system that embraces the idea of humanism, equality, spirituality and above all offers hope. It is an ideal to strive for and one that is relevant today more than ever. Since the emancipation of South Africa in 1994 the legacy of apartheid is still upon us; disparities in wealth, unequal provision of housing, education, health care and the rising tide of crime, to name but a few. Implementing the principals of Ubuntu in all sectors of life offers a solution for a better world for everyone.
Ubuntu: The Global Philosophy for Humankind is a continuation of Mfuniselwa J. Bhengu’s (Member of Parliament, Cape Town) original work Ubuntu: The Essence of Democracy, published in 1996. In his new book, Bhengu further explores how the Ubuntu philosophy can contribute to the developing and globalizing of the world. Ubuntu: The Global Philosophy for Humankind is the most comprehensive study on the philosophy of Ubuntu to date. The book is broken into two parts; with the first part examining the origins and history of Ubuntu and how different races and cultures have interpreted it.
