    African Philosophy and Global Epistemic Injustice.Jonathan O. Chimakonam - 2017 - Journal of Global Ethics 13 (2):120-137.
    In this paper, I consider how the discourse on global epistemic justice might be approached differently if some contributions from the African philosophical place are taken seriously. To be specific, I argue that the debate on global justice broadly has not been global. I cite as an example, the exclusion or marginalisation of African philosophy, what it has contributed and what it may yet contribute to the global epistemic edifice. I point out that this exclusion is a case of epistemic (...)

    History of African Philosophy.Jonathan O. Chimakonam - 2017 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    History of African Philosophy This article traces the history of systematic African philosophy from the early 1920s to date. In Plato’s Theaetetus, Socrates suggests that philosophy begins with wonder. Aristotle agreed. However, recent research shows that wonder may have different subsets. If that is the case, which specific subset of wonder inspired the beginning of … Continue reading History of African Philosophy →.

    The Value of Conversational Thinking in Building a Decent World.Jonathan O. Chimakonam & Uti Ojah Egbai - 2016 - Dialogue and Universalism 26 (4):105-117.
    In this paper we focus on conversational thinking to demonstrate the value of public reasoning in building a decent world and true democracies. We shall take into account the views of selected scholars, especially John Rawls and Jürgen Habermas, on law and democratic practice, to explain why post-colonial Africa is weighed down by sociopolitical hegemonies that have aversion to their opposition and eliminate room for strong institutions, rule of law and human rights. In light of conversational thinking, this eliminates any (...)

  10. Atuolu Omalu: Some Unanswered Questions in Contemporary African Philosophy.Jonathan O. Chimakonam (ed.) - 2014 - Upa.
    That African philosophy began with frustration and not with wonder as it is in Western tradition is a radical statement with far-reaching implications. Implications that are, as challenging as they are intellectually refreshing thus reinvigorating interest in the African discourse. As the discipline of African philosophy vitiated in the post debate disillusionment met with a new generation critical fire; methodic, technical and theoretic demands and issues unresolved in the old order surface. Old questions re-emerge with new and daunting toga while (...)
