  • TITLE: Maduabuchi Dukor and the Legacies of Ontological Practices in African Thought System

    AUTHORS: Adebayo Aina

    KEYWORDS: African Ontology; Analytic Approach; Dukor; Human Existence; Social Order

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Philosophy, Vol.3 No.1A, February 26, 2013

    ABSTRACT: A challenge human existence is confronted in contemporary society is the justification of a coherent social order. Most of these justifications have been grounded, over time, on natural approach to the neglect of the African ontological practice. This natural reference fails to account for the ontological practice premised on African belief system which reconciles the natural and spiritual aspects of human existence. The study adopts the analytic approach in philosophy which evolves a clarification of the ontological concept within the African context.The African ontological practice hinges on Dukor’s perspective which provides for a coherent interconnection among social structure, law and belief system towards the certitude and trust making for harmonious human well-being.Social order is enhanced by this African ontological practice and should, therefore, be incorporated into the public sphere.
