JSAS MINI ACTIVITIES MAY 2021


Was Ali A. Mazrui Ahead of His Time?


by


Seifudein Adem




Overview


Ali Mazrui was passionate about many things. He loved debates, for instance. He loved controversy. He loved prediction. But his love of prediction was perhaps one aspect of his scholarship which had been remarked upon the least, if at all. Mazrui viewed the whole enterprise of scientific prediction with a good deal of skepticism. Yet he had predicted several events that are significant in global and African terms. We will attempt to assess some of these predictions and show how, retrospectively, he seemed to have been substantially vindicated.
