Philosophical Anthropology and the Concept of Human Nature in the Contemporary Society (Published)

The problem is that, in contemporary society in which we live, there seems to be a negligence in identifying what is in conformity with human nature than the contrary. The over-riding issue is “workability” whether good or bad, to the detriment of goodness (virtue). Analytically, this work sets out to underscore the fact that prior to the contemporary society, virtuous living thrived so much. It was observed that there was a shift from the ocentricism to secularism. Cultural infiltrations balked the long existing primordial cultures, diverting man’s attention to what is in vogue without any consideration to its incongruity to human nature. Therefore, for man to re-determine himself, there must be a counter-shift to virtuous living in tandem with his nature.

A Critical Study on the Concept of Ethics and Morality in Comparative Philosophy (Published)

Ethics and Morality are a controversial study in comparative philosophy. In particular, both has recognized and conceptualized a somewhat different way. Because as a succinct analysis on Ethics, it systematically appears that deals with the epistemological background and psycho-socio influence indeed. However, Morality can identify as a simultaneous occurrence of Ethics. It often reflects the personality features of human beings as a scientific and common sense of behavioural acts. Nevertheless, however, the ethical doctrine is more epistemological and intelligible rather than morals. Morality survives through an ethical doctrine of philosophy. On the contrary, Morality often denotes that the norms and values of a social community, occupational codes of conduct, religious principles, and so general. Ethics might also conceptualize as the philosophical critique of Morality. On the contrary, this conceptualized controversy has precisely built an excellent philosophic platform as a comparative way of thinking. Consequently, in this critical study, it has endeavoured to draw-up an analytic extent for the scope of Ethics and Morality. It has mainly worked here as a crucial analysis of historiography, terminological differences, contrasted subject matters and categorical evolution. Hypothetically, it can continuously say that if even it is theoretically different, both should engage mutually and co-dependently.

The Niger Delta Crisis in Nigeria: Some Moral Lessons (Published)

The Niger Delta region of Nigeria is richly endowed with enormous and abundant oil and gas resources contributing to ninety percent of Nigeria’s annual income. The Niger Delta region however, is severely exploited after being explored of her natural resources. This has led to widespread agitation, protest and militancy by her citizens. The crisis this has engendered has very significant moral undertone that one can learn from. Thus this work, apart from its historical insight, attempts to highlights these moral lessons with the thesis that “injustice” always leads to consequences that are not desirable.
