"Because the Country Says They Have to Change"

Rating
0.0 stars

The shift from apartheid to a constitutional democracy in South Africa brought with it a plethora of questions concerning ideas of nationhood, citizenship, and organisational transformation. Integrally caught up in the revolution, the South African Police Service (SAPS) faces transformative challenges on scales far larger than most other organisations in the country. From being the strong arm of the oppressive elite, it has had to restructure and rearticulate its function, while simultaneously attempting to maintain law and order. Like many other corporations and organisations, the SAPS has engaged in interventions aimed at aiding the fluidity of this process. This report is an analysis of one such intervention. It attempts to ascertain the extent to which members are changing as a result of particular diversity workshops conducted in a region of the Western Cape. The analysis focuses on members at one particular station.

Isaac Newton and His Enemies

Rating

David Wolfe, Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of New Mexico, and Director, Oppenheimer Institute for Science and International Cooperation. Isaac Newton has a good claim to being the most famous man of the last 500 years. Whilst no individual can claim to be the originator of what has come to be called the Scientific Revolution, surely Isaac Newton is more responsible than any other single person. If we look at the technology on which our modern world is based - from the existence of electricity to transport to telecommunications and much else - all are based on the science which developed from the 18th century onwards. The Enlightenment, itself, and the concept of the individual, all developed as a result of his thinking. Even the reaction to these ideas from Romanticism to Fascism came about because of the rise of intellectual enquiry. Yet Newton does not fit the picture of 'the scientist' that we hold today. He spent more of his life thinking about alchemy and religion than he did about mathematics or physics. Moreover, he was one of history's greatest misanthropes. Left by his mother at three years of age, he appears never to have recovered from that trauma. This course will investigate Newton's life and work in relation to his achievements and also to his arguments with such people as Robert Hooke, John Flamsteed - the first Astronomer Royal, and Gottfried Leibniz- the codiscoverer of the calculus. An astounding genius, Newton was a deeply flawed human being.

Language, Identity, Modernity: The Arabic Study Circle of Durban
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

A fusion of linguistic, religious, and ethnic groups with rich diverse roots and intersecting histories make up South Africa. However, the literature on most of the smaller groups tends to be thin and uneven, and often tends to relegate them to the margins of the country's major narratives. This innovative study introduces readers to a fascinating world of linguistic, religious, and cultural politics in the South African port city of Durban, from around 1950, the world of the Arabic Study Circle. This Association was led by a group of largely middle class Indian Muslim Gujurati-speaking men who were passionate about breaking out of the narrow confines of their origins and connecting to a larger changing world of learning rooted in Arabic and an Islamic modernity. They were gentlemen who believed in the transformative powers of reading and conversation. They exemplify the broader process common among educated, but disadvantaged, people in apartheid South Africa, and across the decolonised world in search for meaning community and authenticity.
