Editors:

    Assoc. Prof. M.A. Izibili (Ag. Chairman), Prof. A.O. Echekwube, Prof. C.E. Ukhun, Prof. J.A. Aigbodioh, Assoc. Prof. M.L. Igbafen, Dr.(Mrs.) J.O. Ehiakhamen, Dr. E. Imafidon, A.E. Iyare, K.U. Abudu, M.N. Eribo (Secretary).* 
  • An Advisory Editorial Board


Journal Rationale and Guidelines

Among the Esan people of Southern Nigeria, ewanlen connotes wisdom, reasonableness and sensibility.  Hence an Esan elder, a man of epistemic competence, a morally sound mind and a highly cerebral custodian of the traditions and thought systems of the people is referred to as an owanlen.  Thus, when the Board of Studies of the premier Philosophy Department in the Esan region of Southern Nigeria reached a decision to launch a departmental journal of philosophy, the word ewanlen. Was picked as apt and catching enough to represent the goals of the journal and to signal where it has emerged from Ewanlen: A Journal of Philosophical Inquiry is so named for three reasons: first, it is the premier journal of philosophy from the Esan region: second, its title connotes, a strong interest in African philosophy and the philosophy of culture in general; and third, the word ‘ewanlen’ carries with it the very thrust of philosophical inquiry in all its ramification and diversity.

Ewanlen is an annual journal of philosophy that publishes every September 30 thoroughly reviewed and highly scholarly essays in any branch of philosophical inquiry.  Essays that do not reflect the rigour of philosophy would not be published.  All submissions are to come in not later than the 31st of July of each year. A submitted article for review must not exceed 7,000 words.  The journal uses the note and bibliography form of the Chicago Referencing Style (16th Ed.). Accepted papers would be made available online at the University’s website.  Authors will be made to pay a modest publication and journal copy fee of N20,000.00 only or its equivalent to a designated bank account of the Department prior to publication.
