An Ideographic Journey towards Nomothetics
The perspective of contemporaneity is a highly dilemmatic ideological space which needs to be analyzed and re-thought within the indigenous premises of thought. If we delve into the roots of ‘now’ ness we find that that we are defined by a past which is mostly girdled by the colonial shadows which continues to invade every segments of human civilization. The biggest dispute of contemporaneity which interrupts the current format of discourse is that the modernity we interpret is the simulated version of coloniality or a form of modernity which still continues to be defined by colonial aesthetics. The ideographical illustrations of the colonizers needs to be succinctly interpreted so that the process of decolonization could be initiated as a logical, constructive nomothetic method de-linked from every form of physical and metaphysical colonial establishments.
