I'm a philosopher who primarily specializes in African philosophy and the philosophy of religion. I also have serious interests in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics.


I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for Faith and Human Flourishing at LCC International University, LithuaniaI am also a Research Associate in the Philosophy Department at the University of Pretoria.  


I have recently published my third monograph, Ubuntu and Western Monotheism: An Axiological Investigation (Routledge, 2022). This book brings the axiology of theism into conversation with African relational ethics. I also have a new co-edited anthology (with Jonathan Matheson), Epistemic Autonomy (Routledge, 2022).
