Abstract:This dissertation applies Afrocentric methods of decipherment to a sacred symbol selected from the ancient Egyptian language of Mdw Ntr (Words of God). The chosen symbol is transliterated by Egyptologists as neb and translated ideographically as lord, master. My purpose is to determine whether application of certain methods of decipherment innovated by Africologist Weldon C. Williams III enable deeper insight into the meaning of the selected symbol than that which is presently understood. The major finding of this research is that application of these methods do elicit much greater depth of meaning from the symbol than is known or can be known using the conventional linguistic approach of Egyptology. The resulting Afrocentric decipherment of neb herein has revealed new knowledge: an African philosophy of mastery that is emancipatory in that it reveals that self-knowledge is the key to mastery. This research also establishes an African concept of mastery that is distinguishable from feudal European concepts of lord and master which have been projected and misapplied to ancient Egyptian civilization. This dissertation is also significant in that it firmly establishes the importance of Afrocentric methodology in generating new knowledge about ancient Egypt.
