    Dealing with the Other Between the Ethical and the Moral: Albinism on the African Continent.Elvis Imafidon - 2017 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 38 (2):163-177.
    Albinism is a global public health issue but it assumes a peculiar nature in the African continent due, in part, to the social stigma faced by persons with albinism in Africa. I argue that there are two essential reasons for this precarious situation. First, in the African consciousness, albinism is an alterity or otherness. The PWA in Africa is not merely a physical other but also an ontological other in the African community of beings, which provides a hermeneutic for the (...)

    Ontologized Ethics: New Essays in African Meta-Ethics.Elvis Imafidon & John Ayotunde Isola Bewaji (eds.) - 2013 - Lexington Books.
    Ontologized Ethics is a collection of essays in meta-ethics with an emphasis on philosophical discourse in the African context. It focuses primarily on the extent to which metaphysical beliefs may or may not justify moral beliefs, thereby revisiting the issue of the ‘is-ought’ relationship.

    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 (...)

    Rethinking the Individual’s Place in an African (Esan) Ontology.Elvis Imafidon - 2011 - Cultura 8 (1):93-110.
    The paper challenges the dominant view of the individual’s place in an African structure of Being or culture as one cast in the midst, and subject to the operations of forces, which are independently real and existent and can make or mar the individual’s existence based on the kind of relationship he/she establishes with them. The individual is expected to have reverence and awe for these forces; hence he/she is consistently striving to fit into the established structure of Being for (...)

    Mothering, Albinism and Human Rights: The Disproportionate Impact of Health-Related Stigma in Tanzania.Sheryl Reimer-Kirkham, Barbara Astle, Ikponwosa Ero, Elvis Imafidon & Emma Strobell - forthcoming - Foundations of Science:1-22.
    In many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, mothers impacted by the genetic condition of albinism, whether as mothers of children with albinism or themselves with albinism, are disproportionately impacted by a constellation of health-related stigma, social determinants of health, and human rights violations. In a critical ethnographic study in Tanzania, we engaged with the voices of mothers impacted by albinism and key stakeholders to elucidate experiences of stigma. Their narratives revealed internalized subjective stigma, social stigma such as being ostracized by family (...)
