Our paper provides a critical engagement with the evolution of the judicial reception
of ubuntu in the courts from the adoption of the 1993 interim Constitution until
November 2013. Our contribution could have been synthesised and presented in
several different ways.14 We have adopted a different approach from those taken by
Keep and Midgley and by Bennett.15 Instead of following their pattern of discussing
the material under the different areas of law, we have chosen to place emphasis on
(a) chronology (historical trajectory) and (b) thematic development. We have two
aims in making this choice. (excerpt)
