  2. African Perspectives of Moral Status: A Framework for Evaluating Global Bioethical Issues.Caesar Alimsinya Atuire - forthcoming - Medical Humanities:medhum-2021-012229.
    This paper offers an African perspective on moral status grounded on an understanding of personhood. These concepts are key to understanding the differences in emphasis and the values at play when global ethical issues are analysed within the African context. Drawing from African philosophical reflections on the descriptive and normative concepts of personhood, I propose a dual notion of subject and object moral status. I explain how object moral status, duties owed to persons, is differently grounded with respect to subject (...)

    How should African philosophy be done in African Language? In response to this question, I engage Ngugi and Wiredu in their response to this language question in African philosophy. My aim is to appraise and extend their arguments by answering the question of “how” doing African philosophy in African language can be practically achieved. In this regard, I make a case for the creation of an indigenous cultural language that serves as a means of articulating, communicating and disseminating African philosophical (...)

    Let me straight from the beginning confess one thing: I am not happy with the phrase “African Philosophy” used to describe a subject-matter, a specific discipline in the university curriculum. Why? Because it seems to particularize a kind of intellectual production that takes place in Africa and to deny its universal validity. It apparently means, to use the words by Chimakonam himself, “a border-sensitive, culture-bound exclusive system that holds only in Africa and is not universally applicable » Philosophical perceptions of (...)

    The intellectual climate of post-colonial Africa picked up a trail of interesting debates characterized by the quest for identity. In the second half of the twentieth century, for instance, arguments for and against the ‘Africanity’ of the philosophical culture of ancient Egypt occupied a considerable portion of the scholarly landscape of African philosophy. An average researcher into the literature produced by African philosophers in this period would wonder why the inclusion or exclusion of ancient Egyptian intellectual culture as ‘African’ would (...)

  13. Human Wellbeing in Intercultural Philosophical Perspective: A Focus on the Akan Philosophy of Wiredu, Gyekye, and Appiah.Louise Muller - 2022 - In B. Bateye, M. Masaeli, L. F. Müller & A. Roothaan (eds.), Wellbeing in African Philosophy, Insights for a Global Ethics of Development. Maryland:
    Since the 1960s, the focus of African Philosophy has predominantly been Afrocentric, and with an emphasis on racial issues, as a reaction to Eurocentrism. To hold an open intercultural dialogue on African Philosophy with African and other philosophers is, therefore, not-self-evident. This article will argue that intercultural dialogues or (in case of more than two participants) ‘polylogues’ can and should become a more central point of focus in the academic study of African Philosophy. The author will center on how three (...)

    Philosophy from the ancient period to the contemporary period is regarded as the basis for rationality in all human societies. It is thus a veritable framework for showcasing, transmitting and developing the constitutive elements necessary for growth and development. The African philosopher, very steep in western philosophical orientation, is more often than not engaged with the interrogation of reality from the western mindset and saddled with the problem of accommodating the cultural elements in his/her own culture for development, especially in (...)

    As African philosophy continues to make progress, the question of language has emerged as an important issue. Put succinctly; should African philosophy be done through foreign languages or indigenous African languages? This has become a problem which some members of the Particularist and Universalist schools in African philosophy have being wrestling with. While the Particularists favour the view, that African philosophy should be done using an indigenous African language, the Universalists argue that a more universally spoken language should be the (...)

    The debate about the existence of African Philosophy is gradually fading into history as it is being overtaken by the question of the relevance of philosophy to the social, economic and political malaise bedeviling the African States. Currently, the unmasking of the masquerades of cultural imposition from the West is aggressively taking the center stage. In this new wave of recuperative consciousness, practitioners and researchers of academic philosophy in Africa should be propagating and orchestrating the sustained teaching of African virtue (...)

Drawing on African forms of thought and conceptual schemes like ethnophilosophy, ubuntu, sage philosophy, négritude, ibuanyidanda philosophy, and ezumezu logic, the author introduces new concepts and conceptual schemes like mood and proto-panpsychism into philosophical vocabulary and weaves them into a coherent and original (...)

    Social Media Communication has effectively infiltrated all kinds of social groupings, be it at family, community or corporate level. Incidentally, almost everyone who owns a smartphone, laptop, iPad or other related gadgets belongs to one, if not several, social media communication groups through different social media handles such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp Messenger. It is evident that social media groups have come to fill in the gap that has been created by distance between family and friends when members (...)

    As a consequence of his attack on the verification criterion which was employed by the Vienna Circle, Popper proposed an alternative through his idea of falsificationism. Popper did not only see falsificationism as an improved demarcation criterion, he was also convinced that falsificationism attests to the fallible nature of all knowledge systems. Falsificationism embeds Popper’s demarcation of science from pseudo-science. In this study, I draw parallels between falsificationism and traditional Yorùbá epistemology. I disinter the inner kernel of Yorùbá indigenous thought (...)

    This paper examines the legitimacy of African knowledge system, in the light of Karl Popper’s Critical Rationalism, with a view to assessing whether or not African knowledge system is capable of legitimate science. Popper defended an attitude of Critical Rationalism as a mark of the natural sciences and formulated a suitable characterization of the empirical sciences. However, in African epistemic system, the dichotomy between science and non-science collide. The paper demonstrates that the current state of African knowledge system delineates it (...)

    In this paper, I identify two major philosophical crises confronting medicine as a global phenomenon. The first crisis is the epistemological crisis of adopting an epistemic attitude, adequate for improving medical knowledge and practice. The second is the ethical crisis, also known as the “quality-of-care crisis,” arising from the traditional patient-physician dyad. I acknowledge the different proposals put forward in the quest for solutions to these crises. However, I observe that most of these proposals remain inadequate given their over-reliance on (...)

I situate this inquiry within the quest of early professional African philosophers for a stirring of the course of contemporary African philosophy along the path of critically retrieving, clarifying, and articulating aspects of traditional African culture and practices in the light of social pluralism and modernization. The case I make for the establishment of (...)

    With its envisioned benefits of increased productivity, enhanced decision making with digital-based tools, qualitative and efficient processes, improved life expectancy rate, etc., the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a desideratum for contemporary society. The need to prioritize skills and knowledge needed for the participation of Africa in the 4IR thus becomes imperative. This paper argues for indigenous knowledge systems as a possible approach to enhance African participation in the 4IR. Consequently, the paper examines the methodical perspectives that would be appropriate for (...)

    Universally, the idea of needs arises from the limited nature of man. Arising from this limitation, the desires involved in being human are such that man is trapped in a world of needs, which are biological, psychological, social, political, economic and so on. But the understanding that defines and directs these needs depends on the context and culture where the human being functions. This chapter sets out to articulate the key issues that define the idea of needs in African thought. (...)

    This anthology is an important contribution to the interdisciplinary debate on poverty measurement and alleviation. Absolute and relative poverty—both within and across state boundaries—are standardly measured and evaluated in monetary terms. However, poverty researchers have highlighted the shortfalls of one-dimensional monetary metrics. A new consensus is emerging that effectively addressing poverty requires a nuanced understanding of poverty as a relational phenomenon involving deprivations in multiple dimensions, including health, standard of living, education and political participation. This volume advances the debate on (...)

    Franziska Dübgen and Stefan Skupien have written a much needed overview of Paulin Hountondji’s work. While Hountondji is quite well known for his critique of ethnophilosophy, his later intellectual work on scientific dependency and his political writings are not as well known to non-specialist Anglophone readers. This partially stems from the fact that while his later work on scientific dependency has been translated into English, it has been published in the form of short articles or through transcribed interviews, which makes (...)

    In this short piece, I argue that Chimakonam’s Ezumezu logic bears methodological significance for African scholarship as a whole. If method rests on logic, and method accounts for the distinction of one knowledge output from another, then the formulation of a system of logic which can creditably be described as African, even if simply in cultural inspiration, would provide for methodological liberation of African scholarship trapped in western knowledge hegemony since colonial times. First, I discuss in simple terms the theory (...)

    “Constructive-Engagement” is a meta-philosophical and meta-methodological “strategy” suggested by Chinese and comparative philosophy scholar Bo Mou for analyzing and enriching philosophical exchange. In this paper, I will use this strategy towards an end, on a scale, and with a topic not attempted before. I will use it as a “template” for redesigning a poorly developing area of cross-cultural comparison I call Sino-African reflective studies. My goal in this work-in-progress is to design a plan for reconstituting SARS as Sino-African philosophy, an (...)

    Left Universalism, Africacentric Essays presents a defense of universalism as the foundation of moral and political arguments and commitments. Consisting of five intertwined essays, the book claims that centering such arguments and commitments on a particular place, in this instance the African world, is entirely compatible with that foundational universalism. Ato Sekyi-Otu thus proposes a less conventional mode of Africacentrism, one that rejects the usual hostility to universalism as an imperialist Eurocentric hoax. Sekyi-Otu argues that universalism is an inescapable presupposition (...)

He also refrains from depicting Africana philosophy as a documentary description of Africana identity, thereby indicating a refusal on his part to reduce Africana philosophy to identity politics, to mere psycho-existential babble.

    Ethnophilosophy, although glorified by some African philosophers, remains a problem in our undertakings in African philosophy. In its infancy, the problem revolved around the call for a total decolonization of African thought and philosophy, which eventually led to the proliferation of a vast array of mostly descriptive literature about the cultural views and practices of the African, sold to us as not only philosophy but genuine African philosophy. In more recent times, due to the growing development of African philosophy, this (...)
