MEYLAHN, Johann-Albrecht. The folly of vulnerability beyond epistemic injustice and the power of knowledge: a vulnerable praxis of thinking (practical theological ethos) in global conversation. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2012, vol.68, n.2, pp.1-5. ISSN 2072-8050.
The diverse and divided South African context of post 1994 is the context in which the texts of reality are read (knowledge is created and reality is interpreted). This particular diverse and pluralistic reading with and within the context is sensitive to the voice of the other and thus provides an inbuilt deconstruction thereby offering a vulnerable practical theological openness to the global conversation beyond certainties. This holy folly of vulnerability was explored with regards to South Africa's practical theological contribution to the global conversation.
