Title: Disharmony as a Political Vice
Abstract: In this presentation, I examine two important concepts, those of harmony and disharmony by drawing on some thoughts including in three areas of African philosophical ideas and understanding. While I take harmony as virtuous or at least valuable or desirable, I take disharmony as vicious or at least dis-valuable or not desirable. I discuss the desirability of harmony and non-desirability of disharmony and the African Union as exemplification of political practice in Africa in advancing the view that disharmony is a vice, in general and a political vice, in particular, insofar as it undermines the proper practice of politics in Africa.
