    Why African Philosophers Should Build Systems: An Exercise in Conversational Thinking.Ojah Uti Egbai - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):34-52.
    At the height of the Great Debate about the existence or otherwise of African philosophy, Kwasi Wiredu bemoaned the dearth of originality in the practice of African philosophy. For him, African philosophers should now go beyond talking about African philosophy and get down to actually doing it. But what does it mean to do African philosophy? And what is the importance of actually doing African philosophy? In this paper, I will argue that doing African philosophy should involve, among other things, (...)

    Thought Predicament and Unwillingness to Act: Twin Minions of Underdevelopment in Africa.Christian C. Emedolu - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):125-140.
    Varied theories and models of development have been advanced by many scholars to explain the failure of developmental theories and policies in Africa. This paper critically reviews the existing literature on the bane of development in Africa, arriving at what it considers as the most fundamental twin minions of underdevelopment in the continent. The two implicated interrelated issues are thought predicament and unwillingness to act. Whereas thought predicament affects the intellectual faculty, unwillingness to act is the defect of the volitional (...)

    Personhood in a Transhumanist Context: An African Perspective.Ademola Kazeem Fayemi - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):53-78.
    Personhood is an extensively discussed theme in contemporary African philosophy, which has taken metaphysical, epistemological and normative dimensions. In Western philosophical traditions, discourse on personhood is transmuting to debates on transhumanism. Missing in the African philosophical literature is consideration of transhumanism and an explication of the relationship between personhood and transhumanism. In this article, I critically examine the relationship between personhood and transhumanism in an African context. Drawing on Barry Hallen’s African metaphysical account of personhood and Thaddeus Metz’s Afro-communal normative (...)

  5. African Philosophical Foundation of a Pneumatological Controversy Inside the Church of Central African Presbyterian in Malawi.Grivas Muchineripi Kayange - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):79-100.
    I investigate the African philosophical foundations of a pneumatological controversy inside the Church of Central African Presbyterian in Malawi. While apparently the conflict consists in difficulties in embracing both the New Pentecostal Theology and the Reformed Calvinist Theology within CCAP, it is rooted in the philosophical conflict between communitarianism and individualism. CCAP fully embraced the African communitarian philosophy mixed with Christian communism as its essence, while adherents of NPT followed individualism. Consequently, this affected the interpretation of the fundamental doctrines such (...)

    Francophone African Philosophy: History, Trends and Influences.Pius M. Mosima - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):1-33.
    In this paper, I engage in a critical discussion of Francophone African philosophy focusing on its history, the influences, and emerging trends. Beginning the historical account from the 1920s, I examine the colonial discourses on racialism, and the various reactions generated leading to the Négritude movement in Francophone African intellectual history. I explore the wider implications of the debate on Négritude as an integral component of ethnophilosophy in postcolonial Francophone African philosophy. Finally, I argue that in spite of the apparent (...)

  8. African Studies Through Language-Based Techniques.Ndubuisi Osuagwu - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (1):101-124.
    In this article, we argue that language-based techniques have the capacity to generate original ideas and thus account for progress in any discipline. We claim that language-based techniques used by some African scholars such as hermeneutics and related ones such as transliteration are creatively inadequate to inspire progress because they do not lead to the creation of new concepts and original ideas in African thought. We claim also that the technique of intellectual decolonisation with its foremost expression in Kwasi Wiredu’s (...)
