Professor Sam Raditlhalo rebuts Mr. Sduduzo Mncwabe’s review of his previous piece on Zulu ethnic nationalism. Both differ on the analysis of events between the Shell House Massacre and the July 2021 unrest in how they explain the persistent violence in South Africa.

My position is that philosophy, unlike political ideologies, is open to new thoughts and is a process rather than a finality. I see philosophy as a discipline which re-examines itself and self-corrects in order to find meaning as we journey through life. Dialogue situates the role of philosophy to be a unifier of different civilizations while we embrace thinking differently—together.
