Join us December 1 at noon to participate with Professor Henri Bah in a presentation on "Networking: A scientific Research Startegy for the development of African States".
If yesterday’s scientist was a generalist (Aristotle), the evolution of science, through a series of "no's", has led to a regionalization of the latter. Understood as diverse, reality now requires us to be specialists in this or that scientific regionality. However, "the specialist has a bad temper ... Thus, in contact with the specialist, everything becomes dry and sterile. It seems that science gradually loses life by decomposing" (Bergson). In such a context of advanced and specific specialization, how can we give life to science, or at least to scientific research? What strategy or strategies should be mobilized to place science at the service of the development of our young States?
Based on a critical and comparative approach, the present reflection proposes scientific networking as a way of revitalizing a science at the service of the development of our African States.
Henry Bah is a Full Professor in the Department of Philosophy, Director of Management Control and Governance, and Coordinator of the "Governance and Development" Thematic Programme of the CAMES (Conseil africain et malgache pour l'enseignement supérieur) at Alassane Ouattara University in Ivory Coast.
