Fractal Complexity in the Works of Major Black Thinkers

(First Edition)
By Abdul Karim Bangura

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-619-5, 188 pages

©2013

This book is the first in a series geared toward the analyses of fractal complexities in the works of major African/Black thinkers from the continent and the Diaspora. The major challenge for us was how to transform the linguistic pragmatic or deep-level meanings in the literary texts studied for mathematical modeling. This called for the utilization of a pluridisciplinary approach that helped us to mix linguistics and mathematical approaches: more precisely, Linguistic Presupposition and Fractal Methodology.
