    Uncovering Needs in African Thought Through Igbo Proverbs on Lack, Care and Duty.Lawrence Ogbo Ugwuanyi - 2021 - In Motsamai Molefe & Christopher Allsobrook (eds.), Towards an African Political Philosophy of Needs. Springer Verlag. pp. 131-149.
    Universally, the idea of needs arises from the limited nature of man. Arising from this limitation, the desires involved in being human are such that man is trapped in a world of needs, which are biological, psychological, social, political, economic and so on. But the understanding that defines and directs these needs depends on the context and culture where the human being functions. This chapter sets out to articulate the key issues that define the idea of needs in African thought. (...)

    Critiquing Sub-Saharan Pan-Africanism Through an Appraisal of Postcolonial African Modernity.Lawrence Ogbo Ugwuanyi - 2017 - Theoria 64 (153):58-84.
    What vision directs pan-Africanism and which developmental model does it support and promote? To answer this question, the article evaluates pan-Africanism within the demands of African modernity and locates the extent to which pan-Africanism meets the aspiration of African modernity.

    Advancing Bioethical Principles Through the African Worldview and its Potential for Promoting the Growth of Literature in Bioethics.Lawrence Ogbo Ugwuanyi - 2018 - Proceedings of the XXIII World Congress of Philosophy 3:121-126.
