    Ebo Socrates (2014). The Word in African Ontology. Nnamdi Azikiwe Journal of Philosophy 6 (2):1-9.
    THE WORD IN AFRICAN ONTOLOGY Socrates Ebo, PhD ABSTRACT The word in African ontology is more than mere expression of sounds. It is a being which is intra-mental and extra-mental. It is a creation of human mind and the human lips. But it is also an independent entity with enormous causal powers in the African universe of forces. It is an art as well as a means of communication. It is the embodiment of the history of the African community. Embedded (...)

    Thaddeus Metz (forthcoming). What Africa Can Bring to the World. In Tayeb Chenntouf (ed.), General History of Africa, Volume 9: Global Africa. UNESCO ch. 22.
    One major motivation for recognizing African accomplishments has been inward, a matter of enabling those of African descent who had been subject to slavery, colonialism, apartheid and other severe forms of oppression to become aware of what their peoples have done well and to take pride in that. However, another strong reason to recognize African accomplishments, both actual and potential ones, is outward, meaning that it is important for Africa to make visible contributions towards humanity’s progress. This chapter considers Africa’s (...)

    Thaddeus Metz, Reporting on War in Light of an African Ethic.
    There is little theorization of media ethics in light of characteristic sub-Saharan moral values, and virtually nothing on wartime reporting more specifically. Furthermore, what literature there is suggests that ‘embedded journalism’ and ‘patriotic journalism’ are ethically justified during war. In this article, I sketch a prima facie attractive African moral theory, grounded on a certain interpretation of the value of communal relationship, and bring out what it entails for the ways journalists should report on war. My aim is the philosophical (...)

    Thaddeus Metz, The Implications of Afro-Communal Values for Development.
    I consider whether there are values intrinsic to development theory and practice that are dubious in light of a characteristically African ethic. In particular, I focus on what a certain philosophical interpretation of the sub-Saharan value of communion entails for appraising development, drawing two major conclusions. One is that a majority of the criticisms that have been made of development by those sympathetic to African values are weak; I argue that, given the value of communion, development should not be rejected (...)
