Philosophy, Creativity and Development: Reflections on the Importance of Philosophy

Philosophy, Creativity and Development: Reflections on the Importance of Philosophy

Uploaded by Nicholas U. Asogwa

Abstract. This work underscores the value of philosophy as a catalyst for both human and social development. It examines the relationship between philosophy and creativity as well as that between philosophy and national/societal development. Thereafter, it argues that the moral development of the people is a necessary though not a sufficient condition for socio-politico-economic cum scientific development to take place in a country. It discloses that prejudice, unfounded assumptions as well as over-emphasis on materialistic values are the major reasons for low patronage of philosophy by the public. After a thorough examination of the nature of philosophy and the inherent values and potentialities it has for the development of the individual and society, the paper goes on to conclude that until Nigerians realize that the goods of the mind are as important as the goods of the body, things may not really change for the better.

Metaphysics: Its Meaning, Nature, and Relevance to Man and Society

Metaphysics: Its Meaning, Nature, and Relevance to Man and Society

Uploaded by Nicholas U. Asogwa

INTRODUCTION Philosophy as the love for wisdom beams its searchlight towards every aspect of human endeavour where knowledge could be acquired. However, to effectively carry out this task, it is sub-divided into different branches, with each focusing on a given aspect of reality. These divisions or branches of philosophy include Epistemology, Logic, Ethics, Aesthetic, and Metaphysics, etc. This work, however, centres on the branch of philosophy known as metaphysics. The aim is to undergo an extensive exposition of the meaning, nature, scope, and relevance of metaphysics to man and society. Accordingly, our discourse on the subject is categorized in that order. Experience has shown that the majority of those who misconceive and dread philosophy do so mainly with regard to the metaphysics aspect of it. Their grouse with metaphysics is that for them metaphysics is synonymous with occultism and mysticism. Besides, they complain that metaphysics is rife with abstract and hair-splitting terms. Part of the aim of this work is, therefore, to demystify metaphysics by presenting it in the simplest manner such that every class of people in the society can read and comprehend it without the assistance of a professional philosopher. Apart from presenting a detailed explanation of the meaning of metaphysics, other issues such as the sub-divisions of metaphysics as well as the basic elements or fundamental questions of metaphysics were adequately treated. The work was concluded with a consideration of the relevance of metaphysics to man and society.
