    But Hans Kelsen Was Not Born in Africa: A Reply to Thaddeus Metz.M. B. Ramose - 2007 - South African Journal of Philosophy 26 (4):347-355.
    I argue that Metz's undertaking, in seeking a ‘comprehensive basic norm' to underpin African ethics, is similar to Hans Kelsen's postulation of the Grundnorm in his Pure Theory of Law. But African ethics does not need to be underpinned by an approach such as Kelsen's. In my view, Metz's preference for seeking to develop a Grundnorm rests upon a failure to attend carefully to the distinctness of African ethical thinking from Western ethical thinking. This failure is manifest in a spurious (...)

    The Bewaji, Van Binsbergen and Ramose Debate on 'Ubuntu'.J. A. I. Bewaji & M. B. Ramose - 2003 - South African Journal of Philosophy 22 (4):378-414.
    What follows is a discussion, in three parts, of the African concept of ubuntu and related issues. In the first part of the discussion J.A.I.

Ramose's African Philosophy through Ubuntu (2002). And in the third part Ramose responds to both Bewaji and Van Binsbergen. Although Ramose disagrees with some of Bewaji's comments and interpretations (...)

    Birth, Death and Ruth: An Essay in Memory of Emmanuel Chukwudi Eze.M. B. Ramose - 2008 - South African Journal of Philosophy 27 (4):325-331.
    The birth of a particular individual is contingent even though the doctrine of creation out of nothing teaches otherwise. Birth is an ontological invitation alerting the individual to inevitable death. In the intervening period along the path to death the individual is locked in the existential quest for truth. During his lifetime Emmanuel Chukwudi Eze, was engaged in the complex quest for truth. His engagement in the search of the truth of and about Africa elevated him to the status of (...)

    From 'Man is the Measure of All Things' to Money is the Measure of All Things : A Dialogue Between Protagoras and African Philosophy.Martin Odei Ajei & M. B. Ramose - unknown
    Protagoras’ declaration that “man is the measure of all things” is conventionally discussed in the context of epistemology. There was, however, a communal or social dimension to this even in ancient Greece. In the unfolding process of time, this latter dimension assumed greater intensity and expanded systematically into all aspects of human relations. The centrality of money in these relations speaks to the transition from “man is the measure of all things” to money is the measure of all things. It (...)
