    Global bioethics and respect for cultural diversity: how do we avoid moral relativism and moral imperialism?Mbih Jerome Tosam - 2020 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 23 (4):611-620.
    One of the major concerns of advocates of common morality is that respect for cultural diversity may result in moral relativism. On their part, proponents of culturally responsive bioethics are concerned that common morality may result in moral imperialism because of the asymmetry of power in the world. It is in this context that critics argue that global bioethics is impossible because of the difficulties to address these two theoretical concerns. In this paper, I argue that global bioethics is possible (...)

    African Agrarian Philosophy.Mbih Jerome Tosam & Erasmus Masitera (eds.) - 2023 - Springer Verlag.
    This book critically explores indigenous sub-Saharan African agrarian thought. Indigenous African agrarian philosophy is an uncharted and largely overlooked area of study in the burgeoning fields of African philosophy and philosophy of nature. The book shows that wherever human beings have lived, they have been preoccupied with exploring ways to ensure the sustainable management of limited resources at their disposal, to attain to their basic needs: food, shelter, and security. The book also shows that agriculture and the way people relate (...)

    Autonomy-based bioethics and vulnerability during the COVID-19 pandemic: towards an African relational approach.Mbih Jerome Tosam - 2024 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 45 (3):183-197.
    The COVID-19 pandemic has provoked new interest in the notion of vulnerability and in identifying alternative approaches for responding to vulnerable patients and populations during health emergencies. In this paper, I argue that the autonomy-based approach (the most dominant approach in bioethics) to responding to vulnerability during health emergencies is deficient because it focuses only on the interests, values, and decisions of the individual patient. It overly emphasizes respect for autonomy and not respect for the patient as it does not (...)

    Negotiating and Overturning the Othering of Indigenous Epistemologies.Mbih Jerome Tosam - 2020 - Journal of World Philosophies 5 (1):282-286.
    This book persuasively shows that modern philosophical ways of knowing are not the only valid forms of knowledge that exist. Angela Roothaan argues for a critical reappraisal of indigenous ways of knowing and a need to overturn the politics of epistemology that sustain the modern system of knowledge with regard to its othering of indigenous outlooks of nature. According to Roothaan, this can be achieved by broadening our epistemological and moral vistas beyond the thin modern scientific view that circumscribes valid (...)
