Epistemic Freedom in Africa: Deprovincialization and Decolonization is a study of the politics of knowledge in general and specifically of African struggles for epistemic freedom. As a result of the long-term consequences of modernity, enslavement and colonialism, African people have been reproduced as agents in a Eurocentric history. What exist today as conventional ‘philosophy of history’ and academic discourse of history produced within modern universities is still normatively Eurocentric, neo-Enlightenment, neo-Hegelian, neo-Marxist, neo-modernist and Habermasian. In this context thought about historical change is still hostage to resilient linear social-evolutionary notions of ‘transitional’ shifts (Bhambra 2007: 24).
