Philosophical Anthropology: The Veritable Measure For Curbing The Activities of Fulani Herdsmen In Nigeria

Abstract

There has been a rampant threat to lives and properties as a result of the activities of Fulani herdsmen. There isno week that passes by without the news of an area or village that experience the pang of the herdsmen’s attack. Families have been dispersed and towns sacked. So many measures have been employed and new measures arebeing employed to rest the activities of these herdsmen but all efforts prove abortive. It is on the account of this that thisres earch is been carried out to know how this malaise could be laid to rest by introducing philosophical anthropologywhich will go a long way in teaching them what life is all about, how important life is and why it should not be wasted atwill nor be traded with some other thing. To enable them know that life is the supreme value and can only be preserved with other things and not the other way round. That life is an end in itself and not a means to an end. In carrying this research histo-analytical method will  be used as the tool for driving our point home.
