The Relevance of Philosophy
By: Professor Sylvanus Ifeanyichukwu Nnoruka
About the Book
The Relevance of Philosophy defends the assertion that philosophy is not a theoretical irrelevant enterprise. Philosophy is relevant to life, and this book makes use of phenomenological and hermeneutical methods to offer solutions to the social, political, and economic problems in Africa, specifically Nigeria.
With regard to Nigeria, many are of the opinion that the problem is simply and uniquely that of leadership. Others think it is ethnicity while some opine that it is lack of authentic education method. The articles in the book tackle these and other relevant problems.
The authors recommend this book to all Nigerians, and indeed every African. The authors believe it is not enough to keep bemoaning the regrettable events of the past which have crippled Africa’s development. Rather, through critical reasoning, they aim to generate unique solutions to Nigeria’s problems.
