Considering this incessent loss of customs, certain cultural values have endured, despite the current trends of modernity. For instance, the strong sense of value to continue the family lineage. This thesis sets out to examine the patrilinear society of Gabon- the Fang, in relation to the social solutions which contribute to the problematic of fecundity and sterility. The group composed of the fecundity and sterility which entailed the two-sided focus of this problematic as it is a strong fibre of the social tissue of the society, which is also examined alongside the political organisation. Within this perspective, the analysis of particular cultural forms of the question of fecundity and sterility by the Fang of Gabon will not just be viewed in a monographic manner on those which withdraw and restrain from significant deeping and change in modernity of culture, in light of the intercultural confrontation by other societies. Thus, it will also entail an analysis which strive to describe a model destined to clarify, cross-examine the different composants, all cultural forms of interest to this question and all termes of this social resolution. As well as, at the state level and ethnic level. As sterility is often viewed from a clinical point of view which accounts for a biological incapacity attributable to illness.
