The 'Futures of Technology in Africa' wishes to explore Africa's science and technology neither with pessimism nor with optimism, but with realism. It heralds an approach or perspective not to see Africa's future by using stereotyping that is either flattering or condemnatory. It argues for an approach and perspective to understand what is really going on in Africa. It thus provides a lesson on how and why stereotyping must be avoided and realistic analytical approaches have to be preferred.
