Phil 151

Dr. Joseph Asike

An examination of the fundamental nature of reality and existence; a critical inquiry into the categories of existence such as: space, time, cause, relations, transcendence, substance, universals, possibility, actuality change, etc.

Our purpose in the course is to examine if there is any fundamental difference between African and Western metaphysical frameworks and possibly find some of their areas of agreement.
