Victor is an academic philosopher and political theorist. My major research interest includes Postcolonial African philosophy, global political theory, intercultural philosophy, applied logic and normative ethics. I have presented invited academic lectures on topical issues in these areas and related subjects in conferences and workshops. I have also published my opinions in reputable academic platforms. My peer-reviewed publications (articles and chapters in reputable journals and edited books) attempt to interrogate and (re)conceptualize articulate perspectives on right conduct and human flourishing in a complex world using ideas in African philosophy as a focal point of departure. I hope that I will learn more about my research interest as a member of this reputed network.
