ON-GOING RESEARCH
(a) Book Project: Complementarism as Yoruba Epistemic Theory
Abstract: In this paper the thesis put forward is that the Yoruba ways of knowing
is more in consonance with complementarism than any of the traditional western
views. The Yoruba takes into cognizance all the faculties responsible for the
production of knowledge. Knowledge can be attained through any of the cognitive
organs. In their approach to investigative learning or living, the cognitive compass
is not limited to man; it extends to the primordial existence, the ancestral and the
divine. Knowledge for the Yoruba is a continuum and there is little or no
demarcation between the physical and the spiritual because of the inter-relatedness
of the life forces that permeates all aspect of reality. The research draws copiously
form Fagunwa’s narrative to buttress this submission.



                                                                                   9
This research is a critical analysis of Yoruba epistemology with a bid to espousing
the valuable scope of tolerance in our bid to cognize the world around us or within
us. The Epistemic posture of post-modernism had found its relevance amongst the
Yoruba in antiquity. Unlike the west, the Yoruba cognitive approach is
comprehensive and holistic.


(b) KEHINDE, E.O. Ph.D. (Mrs.) Women, Politics and Power: Gender Studies.
This research presents a more balanced conception of women and their practical
involvement in the development of nations. It is a contribution of a woman and the
exercise of power. It is a correction of the male dominated perspective on women
and their power. It gives a new perspective on politics.




                                                                                10
