“African science does not have to apologize for its apparent paucity for enough has already been discovered in a very short time to make it quite clear that a great deal still remains to be brought to light. Nor does it have to dwell on dubious fantasies about mysterious ways or processes of arriving at the knowledge of things, methodologies which cannot be repeated by other human beings. There are certainly other ways of knowing but, until we can state with a fair amount of certainty what these other ways are, we should not encumber this virginal field with pseudoacademic dream-models and science fiction.”
