Dukor’s Theistic Humanism, Panacea to Globalization


Globalization is now a force that must be reckoned with. Globalization has both good benefits and negative effects. This paper examines the benefits and dangers of globalization. The paper uses a critical analytic method to examine the theistic humanistic philosophy of Maduabuchi Dukor and its contribution in this time of globalization. The African idea that man can accomplish his highest rooted in theistic values makes it different from every other form of humanism. The paper concludes and argues that the solution to the excesses of globalization is theistic humanism.
