Synopsis

The Meaning of the Beginning” is a mosaic of timeless wisdom hidden in nature and encapsulated in the folklores of the Igbo of sub-Saharan Africa. This book is a philosophical jab, a moral punch line, and a social commentary on the human condition.
Curious minds, teachers and students of Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology and Religious studies will find this collection useful.




In “The Meaning of the Beginning,” the author has produced a work that is outstanding both in the simplicity of its language and presentation and depth of its philosophical insight … In the short “as it is” commentaries, there are rich and deep philosophical reflections of a moral or religious nature which qualify this work as a serious effort at another type of African Philosophy.

Monsignor Theophilus Okere, Ph-D




This is a beautiful piece of work, a combination of simple tales with uncommon lofty ideals in a flowing and very readable language, picturesquely descriptive of the images desired to evoke, in a manner matching Chinua Achebe’s.

Rev Dr. Emmanuel Odirachukwunma Udechukwu
