    An African Conception of Human Rights? Comments on the Challenges of Relativism.Oritsegbubemi Anthony Oyowe - 2014 - Human Rights Review 15 (3):329-347.
    The belief that human rights are culturally relative has been reinforced by recent attempts to develop more plausible conceptions of human rights whose philosophical foundations are closely aligned with culture-specific ideas about human nature and/or dignity. This paper contests specifically the position that a conception of human rights is culturally relative by way of contesting the claim that there is an African case in point. That is, it contests the claim that there is a unique theory of rights. It analyses (...)

    Personhood and the Strongly Normative Constraint.Oritsegbubemi Anthony Oyowe - 2018 - Philosophy East and West 68 (3):783-801.
    What I will be referring to as the normative view in contemporary African discourse on personhood has received substantial treatment and is beginning to exhibit the sort of systematic coherence that I believe Kwasi Wiredu once anticipated.1 Much of this is due to Wiredu's own work, as well as important recent work by Polycarp Ikuenobe, whose most recent articulation and defense of the view appear in this journal.2 My aim is to engage with this way of thinking about what it (...)

    Menkiti’s Moral Man.Oritsegbubemi Anthony Oyowe - 2022 - Lexington Books.
    Menkiti’s Moral Man provides an original interpretation of Ifeanyi Menkiti’s conception of person, and one that carries significant implications for his metaphysics and moral philosophy. It offers fresh insights on moral agency, moral status, and justice as well as the ontology of living and post-mortem persons in community.

    Physical Continuity, Self and the Future.Oritsegbubemi Anthony Oyowe - 2013 - Philosophia 41 (1):257-269.
    Jeff McMahan's impressive recent defence of the embodied mind theory of personal identity in his highly acclaimed work The Ethics of Killing has undoubtedly reawakened belief that physical continuity is a necessary component of the relation that matters in our self-interested concern for the future. My aim in this paper is to resist this belief in a somewhat roundabout way. I want to address this belief in a somewhat roundabout way by revisiting a classic defence of the belief that enormous (...)
