Sociologias indígenas ioruba: a Africa, o desconcerto e ontologias na sociologia contemporânea

Marcelo C Rosa

Resumo


O texto busca reconstruir a história e a recepção internacional do debate africano centrado na noção de sociologias indígenas, liderado por Akinsola Akiwowo, no âmbito da Associação Internacional de Sociologia. Para além de reconstituir os passos do próprio autor na construção e na apresentação de seu argumento, busca-se também reconstruir os sentidos de sua interpretação nas discussões dominantes sobre teoria e geopolítica sociológica. Os dois principais polos interpretativos seriam a constatação crítica de seu caráter ideográfico e limitado em termos conceituais, de um lado, e a defesa geopolítica de sua importância por ter origem fora da Euroamérica, de outro. Nenhuma das tendências considera, porém, o projeto bem-sucedido. Como conclusão, o texto propõe que uma leitura mais profícua da contribuição das “sociologias indígenas” para a sociologia global se daria por meio de seu reconhecimento como alternativa teórico-metodológica para a expansão do universo ontológico do pensamento sociológico contemporâneo.
