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, Lithuania. I 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. My fourth monograph, African Communitarianism and the Misanthropic Argument for Anti-Natalism, is also now out with Palgrave Macmillan. I argue for the controversial conclusion that any plausible interpretation of African ethics entails anti-natalism. I also have a new co-edited anthology, Value Beyond Monotheism: The Axiology of the Divine, which is forthcoming with Routledge.
