Abstract

An examination of terms of discourse assumes importance in establishing whether post-colonial societies have been able to alter the terms which were fashioned under colonial control. The intellectual processes propelled by colonial regimes derided indigenous systems of knowledge and nurtured natives incapable of comprehending their own history and culture. Post-colonial states normally had little choice other than consolidating inherited systems.
