The second book in the Fractal Complexity
series continues its in-depth review of the works of major African and Black thinkers from the continent and the diaspora. Using a pluridisciplinary approach that combines linguistic presupposition and fractal analysis, the book examines the many levels of meaning and similarity of pattern in literary texts studied for mathematical modeling, thereby enriching both of the contributing fields of study.
The book covers a diverse range of topics with insight and outstanding scholarship. Whether exploring the roles of Christianity and Islam, the contributions of Marcus Garvey and Toussaint L'Ouverture, or concepts such as a pax Africana and the underdevelopment of Africa, the material addresses the implicit assumptions on which the truth of any statement hangs.
Each chapter includes an introduction to help contextualize the selection, a review of relevant literature, analysis of the reading, a conclusion, and a complete list of references and sources. Fractal Complexity in the Works of Major Black Thinkers, Volume Two
