The Concept of "Ubuntu": Africa's Most Important Contribution to Multicultural Education?
Le Roux, Johann
MCT, v18 n2 p43-46 Spr 2000
Examines the African concept of "ubuntu", which indicates an inner state of almost complete humanization and is the essence of community and commonality. Discusses how ubuntu could contribute to multi-cultural education. Central to the concept of ubuntu, and much like the philosophy underlying multi-cultural education, is that caring for others is a fundamental approach to life in all its facets. (SM)
