NOTE: THESE PHILOSOPHY QUESTIONS ARE BASED ON ON INTRODUCTIONS SO AS TO GUIDE STUDENTS ON HOW TO WRITE GOOD PHILOSOPHICAL INTRODUCTION.
- Colonialism is described as to be evil to the Africans. Discuss.
- The barbaric nature of colonialism has turned the Africans from a horizontal one to a vertical one. Discuss.
- Colonialism is the off rootedness of the African being. Discuss.
According to J.l Christain, Philosophy is the posing and the reposing of questions till meaningful answers are being given. That's why the question Colonialism is described as to be evil to the Africans is posed. There are 2schools of thought, the first school of thought argue's that colonialism is evil to Africans and the second school of thought argue's that it is not evil to the Africans. But is colonialism actually Described as to be evil to the Africans?
- Based on Philosophical perspectives, PAN-AFRICANISM has led to the development of some African countries do you agree?
In an attempt to re-construct the African identity and unity destroyed by slave trade, there was a need to develop ideologies by some children of X-Slaves. Among which we have Pan-Africanism. Pan-Africanism is a Philosophy that calls for the unity of all African people and countries, so that they could fight for their personality. This question seeks to examine the fact that Pan-Africanism led to the development of some African countries but did Pan-Africanism really led to African development?
- Negritude has resulted to racism and discrimination in Africa do you affirm this assertion.
It is very clear that during Colonialism the African culture was destroyed especially through assimilation and consequently, there was the need for some African thinkers especially those from French colonies to develop some ideas with which to regain this culture. For Aime Cesare, negritude is the fact of bein black, the acceptance of this fact and the respect of history and destiny of Africans. This question seeks to examine the fact that Negritude has resulted to racism and discrimination in Africa. But has Negritude actually led to racism and discrimination in African?
- Consciencism is of positive impact to the Africans do you agree?
During colonialism the African society was transformed from a horizontal to a vertical one and consequently, at independence there was a need by most African leaders to develop some ideas for African leaders to develop some ideas for African society to be horizontal. Among these ideas we have consciencism which is a title of a book written by Kwame Nkrumah. There are two schools of though the first which is of the fact that consciencism is of a positive impact and the other that argue's that it is not. But was consciencism actually of positive impact to the Africans?
- Witchcraft is a myth. Discuss.
According to J.L Christain, Philosophy is the posing and the reposing of question till meaningful answer are giving that is why the question witchcraft is a myth is been posed. Witchcraft is man's ability to tap the forces of nature that is (physical or mystical) developed and use them for whatever motives. Our pre-occupation is to determine whether witchcraft is a myth or it is not a myth. But is witchcraft actually a myth?
- Tribalism is a curse to the African continent. How tenable is this assertion?
For Kwame Nkrumah, tribalism is the root and fabric of Africans. This simply means that it is through tribalism that somebody is considered as an authentic African. Tribalism is the act of attributing something to somebody not on the base of merit but the base of feelings resulting from tribe.
