Odera Oruka’s Philosophic Sagacity: Problems and Challenges of Conversation Method in African Philosophy
This paper examines the implications and challenges of Odera Oruka’s conversation approach to the study of contemporary African philosophy as enunciated in his “Philosophic sagacity”. In Oruka’s method, African philosophy is conceived as a joint venture and product of both the ancient (traditional) and modern African
philosophers. Consequently, it utilizes interview, discussion and dialogue.
