Kurzbeschreibung

Ubuntu is premised on the ethical belief that an individual’s humanity is fostered in a network of human relationships. The essays in this lively volume elevate the debate about ubuntu beyond the buzzword it has become, offering a rich understanding of ubuntu in all of its complexity and reflecting on a value system rooted in the everyday practices of ordinary people in their daily encounters with churches, schools, and other social institutions.
