Introductory Studies in Philosophical Science: An Afro-Humanistic Approach

ByAlloy S Ihuah PhD

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The achievements in science and technology have served to to improve and prolong life though, they have also served to provide resources for its brutal extermination. Science and technology provide the material ingredients which human development requires though, happiness, ethical values; spiritual well being and wholesomeness of the human person are no less needed as important elements of a humane society. In this book, the author argues that, a pro-active ethical approach to scientific and technological endeavours guarantees a sustainable and more human friendly development which transforms the quality of human life on earth. Sustainable human development is not, and should not be a journey outward away from the essential human nature. It involves shifting the balance of human development towards improving the quality of human life. A Civilization qualifies as development, if and only if increase in knowledge is accompanied with increase in wisdom.
