Wanting to contribute to the debate on postcolonial African Emergence and Renaissance, and using the method of futuristic hermeneutics, the author denounces the widespread importation of governance models (1), questions the code of the emergence of the Pharaonic Egypt (2), the thinking gesture by which the ancient Greek students returned home have disseminated and developed the acquired knowledge (3), the causes of the loss of this historical status by Egypt (4) and the dogmas of Western Academism (5). From there, and aiming at the construction of a concept of Universal after the event, he implements epistemo-ethics as a mode of prospective evaluation of the African antecolonial tradition, by crossing it with the postcolonial reality, in order to to come up with an original and dynamic synthesis, through which Africa can re-emerge and re-born in the new globalized world, to a degree that aims at Development, of which Happiness is the goal, as a path, and no longer as a destination. He concludes that deep decolonization of the African understanding is the condition for Africa's re-emergence and renaissance for development.
