dc.description.abstract A consequence of the post-modern world is a highly critical, fragmented and unconventional world in which the status quo, such as dominant cultures and societal norms are constantly challenged. Within this context, this article reflects upon notions of “Africanness” and a traditional African paradigm, as well as the ideals on which social and normative interaction and principles can be based in contemporary society. Furthermore, as a result of the diverse, yet eclectic nature of South African society, it is postulated that criminological theories would require a multivariate as opposed to a linear approach to its analysis and application to a multitude of experiential worlds. en
