Ibuanyidanda (Complementary Reflection) and Some Basic Philosophical Problems in Africa Today

Sense Experience, "ihe mkpuchi anya" and the Super-maxim

By Innocent I. Asouzu

This book gives an insightful account of how some fundamental phenomena and mechanisms control human consciousness, impacting the way we think, will, and act. The book identifies these phenomena and mechanisms as ihe mkpuchi anya, the super-maxim, and the inherently tension-laden ambivalent character of our experience of reality. It re-examines fundamental problems of philosophy from the perspective of ibuanyidanda (complementary reflection) and how the problems reappear in the way philosophy is conducted in Africa today.
