SlaveOfAllah14 reacted to beardedbaker for a blog entry, African Philosophy - Nigerian Social Theory
Something I need to write about: the Asuwada principle (purpose of creation)
It Can be summarised into these 3 fundamental axioms:
1. The unit of social life is the individual's life, being, existence or character
2. Although each human being is metaphysically a unique emanation of a Divine Being, each individual's life as a corporeal self, needs the fellowship of other corporeal selves to feel and be whole and complete
3. The corporeal individual, essentially, cannot continue-in-being without community
This is Nigerian social theory.
There is so much correlation to Islamic gnosticism it's unreal.
