              Seminar paper de l'annee 2017 dans le domaine Histoire - Afrique, note: 1,0, Universite Paul Cezanne Aix - Marseille III (Departement d'Histoire), cours: L09S2 Histoire de l'Afrique subsaharienne, langue: Francais, resume Le groupe socio-professionnel griot est un component centr...al de la societe de l'Afrique de l'Ouest. Il y a des groupes varies d'individus designes par un nom specifique dans differentes societes du continent Africain et tous traduits par le terme de griot, en usage dans plusieurs langues europeennes pour denommer plusieurs statuts de cet groupe socio-professionnel. Dans cet essai nous allons reflechir sur le seul griot mandingue (jeli) qui appartient a la categorie sociale des nyamakala dans cette zone culturelle de l'Afrique de l'Ouest. Par ailleurs, le groupe socio-professionnel griot existe deja depuis longtemps, mais nous allons focaliser aux griots mandingues au XXIe siecle. Apres avoir argumente que les griots ne sont pas une tete historique, nous allons voir que la veritable fonction socioculturelle d'un griot est celle d'un alchimiste social . D'abord, nous allons reflechir d'une maniere theorique sur la fonction socioculturelle du griot. Puis, nous allons considerer des aspects pratiques, notamment son role dans la scene musicale et dans le monde politique et la relation entre des griots et des bardes de chasses. Ces reflexions nous conduisent a la question si le temps des griots est passe.

              Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: High Merit, London School of Economics (Department of Government), course: Modern African Political Philosophy, language: English, abstract: A central element of African t...hought is the conception of communal personhood. In this essay, we will examine three such communal conceptions of personhood in light of their interrelation with individual responsibility. First, we will have a closer look on Menkiti's communal conception of personhood and will argue that his account alone is not able to justify individual moral responsibility, but that it is compatible with Gyekye's communal conception of personhood that underlines certain mental features that hold communal agents individually responsible for their actions. After having discussed and responded to the problem regarding the extent to which a person's reasoning and her moral sense is shaped by the communal culture she was socialized in, we will have a look on the third communal conception of personhood that arises in a Yoruba allegory and will discuss its implications for individual responsibility. At first, we extract the preferred Yoruba communal conception of personhood out of the allegory. Then, we apply our finding of 'self-determined but communal' action on three possible options of receiving one's destiny in heaven and clarify for each the realm of individual responsibility.
