This paper investigates the perception of otherness during enlightenment and in post-colonial Africa.

This paper however focuses on states of crisis in Africa and intends to shed light on repressed problems in dealing with otherness in order to find explanatory avenues for a theory on crisis and crisis resolution on the African continent.
