Ana Atutu – Igbo Philosophy: An African Perspective on the Problem of Identity and Conflict Resolution

This book is an attempt to found an African Philosophy on the principles generated by African Philosophy itself.  It is a book that rationalizes Igbo African Philosophy, drawing from it non-philosophical corpus to make explicit the philosophy implicit in it. This book is s venture that takes on the problem of identity in the light of contemporary studies regarding conflict resolution.


This book is a brilliant work of synthesis presented in a style that is a delight to read….It is a detailed examination of troubling issues of  identity and conflict resolution and a must read for all interested in Igbo philosophy and views towards these issues”
