Note to Contributors:

Ezumezu: African perspectives on Logic, Transhumanism and AI Ethics (Ezumezu) is an interdisciplinary and decolonial journal dedicated to the publication of well-researched articles, primarily of the qualitative type but not excluding its quantitative variant. Our goal is to create a platform on which scholars can engage with the ideas of their colleagues. Thus, our main audience would be researchers and practitioners of philosophy, generally speaking, and African philosophy and other related fields in the humanities and the social sciences in particular. In this regard, articles submitted to Ezumezu: African perspectives on Logic, Transhumanism and AI Ethics must be presented in the conversational style. We publish two issues per year. Submissions may include original articles (full-length articles that propose a new/novel idea, build on an existing system, or extend existing arguments); conversations (shorter essays that aim to deconstruct and reconstruct an idea in a previously published essay); and book reviews (mainly focused on contemporary literature in African philosophy and studies).
