The collection of essays in this volume seek to understand the concept of Ubuntu within the context of the everyday practices in society. To fully understand Ubuntu and its manifestation in contemporary society we need to locate it in the politics and poetics of the everyday since the everyday represents an indispensable starting point for the reconstruction of meaning. The essays argue that if the politics compel us to immerse Ubuntu in the everyday power relations, the poetics of it calls for a search for a new grammar of speaking that allows us to situate Ubuntu in our daily entanglements and in those rituals that govern our daily encounters.
