    Methodological Anarchism or Pluralism? An Afro-Constructivist Perspective on Paul Feyerabend’s Critique of Science.J. Chidozie Chukwuokolo - 2017 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 6 (2):42-58.
    In this article, I argue that methodological pluralism is not identical with methodological anarchism. While the former connotes the existence of different methods that could be legitimately employed in different disciplines or contexts, the latter tends to suggest the non-existence of any legitimate method at all.

    A Hermeneutic Understanding of Dialogue as a Tool for Global Peace.J. Chidozie Chukwuokolo & Victor O. Jeko - 2019 - Dialogue and Universalism 29 (3):23-39.
    The problem of threat to international politics and global peace has undermined the effectiveness of the power of dialogue. The world seems to be in the condition of will to power derivable from the mutually assured destructive tendencies. Is it possible to extend global peace? How can this be achieved? In this paper, we posit that dialogue is a fundamental medium for conflict resolution and peaceful coexistence in a diverse world. We contend that monologue in international politics understood in terms (...)
