Description

Abstract

The debate on the “tribe” (and “tribalism”) tends to be narrowly defined around the colonial and anthropological origins of the concept and/or in relation to the (derived) usage of these terms by Africans. In this article, the “tribe” is seen as an ideological construct of capitalist hierarchy and Eurocentric worldview as a whole, an instance of the dominant paradigm of social science, within which it has played a specific role.
