KWAME NKRUMAH CONSCIENCISM PDF

However, the true sons of the soil who happened to be nationalists like Kwame Nkrumah, Obafemi Awolowo, Kenneth Kaunda and others fought bravely for the independence of these countries and hence came self-governance. After the granting of independence and the leave of the colonial masters, these educated nationalists went ahead to forge for Africa an ideology that would carry them to the Promised Land. In this work, the ideology will be under the spotlight, alongside it will be Kwame Nkrumah himself and finally a critical evaluation will be provided with us supporting either side of the coin, that is, whether or not the ideology is good enough for us in Africa. Neo-colonialism is a situation whereby the black man feels inferior to the Europeans and derives psychological satisfaction only by associating with them. Even till today, traces of neo-colonialism are still visible.

Neo-colonialism is a situation whereby the black man feels inferior to the Europeans and derives psychological satisfaction only by associating with them.

Even till today, traces of neo-colonialism are still visible. The African never values any product that is of African origin. This ideology is an exercise in anti-colonialism. It advocated for a social revolution which was to be brought about by an intellectual revolution.

This was clearly articulated in the first sentence of the first chapter of the book. It was marked that Consciencism arrived at a stage of development where the vigorous African search for freedom; unity and identity need to be expressed in the form of philosophical statesments2. The minimum assertion of materialism is the absolute and independent existence of matter3. In other words, there is a problem with bringing metaphysics into the realm of political discourse.

For the above reasons, the problem arises as to whether or not philosophical consciencism is not merely a theoretical concept, which will fail in practice. It shall be analytical in that every concept used shall be broken down into simple words.

In this book, Nkrumah makes a case for a re-structuring of the African society away from colonialism and towards economic and political success. The book brings together various quotes of Kwame Nkrumah from various books by him and addresses delivered by him either in his official capacity as president of Ghana or simply as Kwame Nkrumah. Another book that will be used in this work is by Gideon-Cyrus M. Mutiso and S.

The book as the name suggests contains selected topics from various political thinkers and the writings from Kwame Nkrumah featured prominently in the book. Here the author makes a case for Pan-African unity. He also urged the people of African descent in the West Indies and in the United States of America to strive for this unity as it will be a very important factor in the political and economic emancipation of the African. These mentioned books and others written by Kwame Nkrumah and other authors will be used.

KWAME NKRUMAH’S CONSCIENCISM: A PHILOSOPHICAL ANALYSIS

His father did not live with the family, but worked in Half Assini where he pursued his goldsmith business until his death. Kwame Nkrumah was raised by his mother and his extended family, who lived together in traditional fashion, with more distant relatives often visiting. He lived a carefree childhood, spent in the village, in the bush, and on the nearby sea. During his years as a student in the United States, though, he was known as Francis Nwia Kofi Nkrumah, Kofi being the name given to males born on Friday. Sources indicated that Ngolomah stayed at Tarkwa-Nsuaem and dealt in goldsmith business.
