“A too highly developed individualism can lead to a debilitating sense
of isolation so that you can be lonely and lost in a crowd....
Ubuntu is not easy to describe because it has no equivalent in any of the Western languages.... Ubuntu speaks to the essence of being human
and our understanding that the human person is corporate.
The solitary individual is in our understanding a contradiction in terms.
You are a person through other persons. Ubuntu speaks about the importance of communal harmony ... speaks about warmth, compassion, generosity, hospitality, and seeks to embrace others.”
