oa Alternation - Direction1 in Afrikaans Literature

Volume 11, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1023-1757



To indicate the direction of an intellectual trend of your own time is in no way an objective, precise or scientific undertaking. The idea itself is a figure of speech and unclear, because 'direction' is not as distinct and singular as on a map or in the veldt. The starting point, the present, we never comprehend in a concise, mental way, but with our own humanity, the full range of emotions; and the next point, somewhere in the future, we posit with our desire and will. You need only ask a communist, a liberal or a nationalist the future direction of the world. For each it would seem as if the world is developing according to his or her own aspirations.
