    Human Nature in Marxism-Leninism and African Socialism.Oseni Taiwo Afisi - 2009 - Thought and Practice: A Journal of the Philosophical Association of Kenya 1 (2):25-40.
    Understanding the true nature of the human being is no doubt a sine qua non for developing an ideology for a desirable praxis. This paper examines the pitfalls of Marxist-Leninist scientific socialism and African socialism.

  4. Re-Echoing the Conservatism in Karl Popper’s Piecemeal Engineering.Oseni Taiwo Afisi - 2020 - Studia Philosophica Wratislaviensia 15 (1):9-18.
    While Karl Popper highly valued the ability to invent a bold new form of theoretical thought, he warned us at the same time of the need to be cautious in action. Ambitions that are utopian or revolutionary seemed to Popper always unacceptable. We must always be open to reforming our practices, but we must attempt this slowly and piecemeal. Every change that we make we must hold open to criticism. However, change must be conservative and anti-revolutionary. This is the demand (...)
