Editor's note: We question the nomenclature of the above critique, but not its essence. The problem is not "science," but the pseudo-scientific rationalistic cant that pervades contemporary critical culture. More to the point is Cornelius Borck's Animism in the Sciences which concludes that “voodoo is perhaps precisely where science and technology are heading," even as Harry Garuba's treatise on Animism, Modernity/Colonialism, and the African Order of Knowledge insightfully and incisively recontextualizes its historical perspective.
