Derailing National Consciousness

The article also credits Risley and the colonial census for the establishment of caste as a socio-political and cultural reality in today’s India. Keywords:  Derailing National Consciousness ...

Valuable functionalism as a trend of modern social cognition

Review Article of International Journal of Social Research Valuable functionalism as a trend of modern social cognition Mykhailo Boychenko Taras Shevchenko national university of Kyiv, Department of Theoretical and Practical Philosophy, Doctor of Science in Philosophy, Professor Kyiv, Ukraine The valuable functionalism appears as a strategy of achieving the working interaction between social sciences and humanities, and thus becomes paradigmatic value: in addition to developing its own epistemological perspective it offers a methodology and philosophy which enable new institutional perspective to develop a new type of single socio-humanitarian knowledge. Valuable functionalism is cognitive position and strategy of action, which asserts the values with help of their functional interpretation and implementation in certain behavior. Modern humanities needs to take into account the experience of the combination of value and functional aspects of a systematic approach in social cognition, which should be considered as a philosophical reflection of paradigmatic shift processes in modern social-humanitarian knowledge. Keywords:  valuable functionalism, values, social functions, framework conditions, communicative communities, categories ...

Post-colonial Study of Akachi Ezeigbo’s Trafficked

Research Article of International Journal of Social Research Post-colonial Study of Akachi Ezeigbo’s Trafficked Dr. Emmanuel, Ima Usen Department Of English, University Of Uyo Post-colonial literature which has become a phenomenon for all nations examines, among others the anti-conquest narrative and the functional relations of social, cultural and political powers that sustained the tripartite governmental bodies of colonialism, post-colonialism and neo-colonialism. Since the colonialists viewed the masses as the ‘Other’ the well-being of the colonizers remained unchallenged as the nomenclature fluctuated from colonialists to post colonialists and to neo-colonialists. These named archetypal structures support all forms of corruption in which human trafficking and the inherent psychological trauma are apparently part. This paper examines post-colonialism in the Akachi Adimora Ezeigbo’s Trafficked through the theoretical framework of post-colonialism. The paper depicted the experience of the migrates in diasporas: ill-treatment of women: and also examined the ideology and practice of neocolonialism fixated on the ideology and practice of colonialism. The paper further portrayed the brazen corrupting influences of the post-colonialists and how they actively employed the ‘Us-and Them’ binary social relation to govern their community; which among others, are reflected on the realities of undue and illegal trafficking of young women prevalent in contemporary Nigerian society. The paper further observed that the post colonialists like their colonial masters and the neo-colonialists, use language as their most important vehicle to exercise powers through a mixture of coercion, persuasion, conflict and collaboration to imprison the colonized. It is the view of this paper that any human-being has the potential for redemption however dark their situation, as exemplified in the lives of the Nneoma and Efe: some of the deported essentialists commercial sex workers who for instance, settled down to some craftsmanship and family lives, Nneoma further gained admission into the University to further her education ...
