    Language, Thought, and Interpersonal Communication: A Cross-Cultural Conversation on the Question of Individuality and Community.Ada Agada & Uti Ojah Egbai - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (2):141-162.
    The ongoing debate among African philosophers on the relation of the individual and the community has spawned radical, moderate, and limited communitarian views. In this paper we will insert the question of interpersonal communication into the individual-community conundrum and raise the discourse to the level of cross-cultural engagement. We will highlight the dominant perspectives in Afro-communitarianism with particular emphasis on the Ghanaian philosopher Kwame Gyekye and the Nigerian philosopher Ifeanyi Menkiti. Expanding the discourse into the domain of intercultural/comparative philosophy, this (...)

    The Apparent Conflict of Transcendentalism and Immanentism in Kwame Gyekye and Kwasi Wiredu’s Interpretation of the Akan Concept of God.Ada Agada - 2017 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 6 (1):23-38.
    In this paper I compare Kwame Gyekye’s transcendentalist interpretation of the Akan conception of God with Kwasi Wiredu’s immanentist interpretation. I highlight the tension between the two thinkers’ interpretations of Akan religious thought within the broader conflict between transcendence and immanence. Using the analytic, critical, and interpretative method, I show how the reconciliation of Gyekye and Wiredu’s divergent, yet paradoxically overlapping visions can be effected in the idea of panpsychism. In the process of effecting this reconciliation, I open up a (...)

    The Idoma Concept of Ihotu.Ada Agada - 2020 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 9 (1):17-30.
    The notion of love is one of the fascinating concepts available to humans. Love is perhaps the most powerful emotion a human being can experience. Love is immediately recognized as a feeling. It is only after observing human conduct that it dawns on us that there is a rational dimension of love. In this paper I will discuss the Idoma-African concept of ihotu, or love. Since the very idea of an Idoma philosophy of love is an entirely novel idea, with (...)

    Are We Finished with the Ethnophilosophy Debate? A Multi-Perspective Conversation.Elvis Imafidon, Bernard Matolino, Lucky Uchenna Ogbonnaya, Ada Agada, Aribiah David Attoe, Fainos Mangena & Edwin Etieyibo - 2019 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 8 (2):111-138.
    In line with the tradition of the Conversational School of Philosophy, this essay provides a rare and unique space of discourse for the authors to converse about the place of the ‘ethno’ in African philosophy. This conversation is a revisit, a renewal of the key positions that have coloured the ethnophilosophy debate by the conversers who themselves are notable contributors to arguments for and against the importance of ethnophilosophy in the unfolding of African philosophy particularly in the last decade or (...)

    Nietzsche’s Idea of Eternal Recurrence and the Notions of Reincarnation in Onyewuenyi and Majeed.Anthony Chimankpam Ojimba & Ada Agada - 2020 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 9 (2):35-56.
    This paper examines Nietzsche’s idea of eternal recurrence and the notions of reincarnation in Onyewuenyi and Majeed with a view to showing how convergence and divergence of thought in the Nietzschean, Onyewuenyean and Majeedean philosophy contexts can inform cross-cultural philosophizing. Nietzsche’s idea of eternal recurrence represents his deep thought, which claims that every aspect of life returns innumerable times, in an identical fashion. On the other hand, Onyewuenyi posits that reincarnation is un-African as he conceives it as the theory that (...)
