Decolonising the Mind As far as a more critical reception is concerned, many critics have argued, most prominently Simon Gikandi, that Ngũgĩ’s theory of language as purported in "Decolonising the Mind" “fetishizes language as an ahistorical repository of an innate, romantic and cultural harmony. Gikandi asserts that despite Ngũgĩ’s attempts to construct a theory of language that both defines communities and structures experiences, he is left with a forced harmonization: "no language can exist independent of the social ambition of its speakers or the ideological presuppositions behind the institution in which it is taught." According to Gikandi, Ngũgĩ proposes a theory of language that runs up against "all historical evidence" so that he may “reconcile three conflicting perspectives on language: the materialist, the romantic, and the phenomenological." Gikandi does concede, however, that the "real" value of Ngũgĩ's discourse on language “lies in its reconceptualization of national identity and of the institutions of literary and cultural production as vehicles of this identity.”
