Although Theophilus Okere´s book African Philosophy has made remarkable
impact on African philosophical scholarship, many may not be aware of the
way he tried to apply his preferred method to other areas of the
philosophical investigation in Africa and to overcome the risk of
relativism through the promotion of intercultural dialogue in philosophy.
The essays published in this volume bear testimony to the multivalent
character of Okere´s contribution to African philosophy. Most of the
essays are about Okere´s hermeneutics of culture. Some of the authors
examine the method in itself, while others focus attention on its
application to specific philosophical themes.
