(PhD) African literature, continental philosophy and what I term intellectual shamanism (voluntary madness)If you are fortunate, you go to the limits of your being. This resonates with a warrior mentality: facing death. I'm from Africa, child of colonial civilisation and its emotionally repressive mores, now living in Australia. I've spent my adult life contemplating the issues I raise in my videos, which have to do with war, altered states of consciousness and social status. I'm interested in how gender is constructed through political violence. Contrasts between nature and civilisation preoccupy me. I've also spent a lot of time recovering elements of my shattered mind from the historical past. Join me and discuss philosophy from the perspective of historical immersion.
