A proverb which exists in many African lamguages comments pithily that 'No single individual can embrace the baobab tree', in other words, human wisdom is so great that it would be presumptuous and arrogant of a single individual to claim to have mastered it all. Saayman has used this metaphor as his title in Embracing the baobab tree: a compilation of papers read at the Interdisciplinary Symposium on the African Proverb in the 21st Century, held at the University of South Africa in Pretoria, 1995.
