Historical Context The speech “Slavery in the United States; Its Consistency with Republican Institutions, and Its Effect upon the Slave and Society” was presented by Robert Toombs before the Few and Phi Gamma debate societies at Emory Collage in Oxford, Ga. on July 20th, 1853. Emory College had been founded only 16 years earlier but already had a reputation as being a locus of proslavery sentiment and debate (Jamieson 55). The Phi Gamma and Few Societies were “Modeled after the literary societies of British Universities such as Oxford and Cambridge” (“About Emory Debate”). These literary societies were essential and productive in generating the southern world view not only in Georgia, but in the
Likewise, such is the case with King Phillip’s war in seventeenth century colonial America. Thus Jill Lepore’s book, The Name of War: King Phillip’s War and the Origins of American Identity, is a tremendous undertaking. However, Lepore steps out of the box and examines this historical event from a unique and interesting perspective. In 1999 when Lepore wrote The Name of War, she was an assistant professor of History at Boston University. Since then she moved on to Harvard University and became the Chair of the History and Literature program in 2003 and was “named Harvard College Professor in 2012.” Lepore received her undergraduate degree in English, her masters in American Culture and her Ph.D. in American Studies she is also a contributing writer to the New Yorker Magazine.

Tel: +2348035992490, +2348050293410, +2347081485254. Accepted 08 October, 2010 Art is necessarily a cultural system, and culture in its mutation moves in the direction of societal becoming in the same manner as it dictates the direction of artistic creations and recreations. However, as the world, especially Africa, is being dragged along in the imperialist project of globalization, this paper interrogates the fate of cultural theory again, as it especially affects literary criticism of African texts. In the midst of what has been termed ‘nationality’s malady’, some would opt for cultural dialogue rather than effacing non-dominant ‘cultures’. There is therefore a call for an ambitious rethinking of cultural theory in order to make sense out of the grand narratives in which it is presently enmeshed, while it seeks this dialogue.

THE IDEA OF POLITICS IN ACHEBE’S ANTHILLS OF THE SAVANNAH AND MACHIAVELLI’S THE PRINCE BY EMMANUEL IWUH (DI/440) Being a Term Paper Submitted to the Philosophy Department of Dominican institute of Philosophy and Theology, Samonda Ibadan. (In affiliation to the university of Ibadan) In partial Fulfilment for the Award of Bachelor degree in Philosophy. COURSE- PHI/308 PHILOSOPHY OF LITERATURE LECTURER- MR CHIKA MBA MAY, 2012 INRODUCTION For any state to be in harmony and at peace there must be a body that makes sure that such aim is achieved. And the stabilizing factor that accounts for the orderliness in a state is politics. Politics comes from the Greek word politika which refers to an act or science of running affairs, including behaviour within civil governments, but also applies to institutions, fields, and special interest groups such as the corporate, academic, and religious segments of society.

He also edited A Companion to African Philosophy, published in 2004. Kwasi Wiredu was a member of the Committee of Directors of the International Federation of Philosophical Societies from 1983-1998. His study of the still influential colonial accounts of African thought has led him to raise some fundamental questions about philosophy and culture and, in particular, about the philosophical conditions
