The Calabar School of Philosophy (CSP) is a professional academic forum comprising of scholars (like-minds) across disciplines and devoted to the promotion of research and publications in any area of African and Intercultural thought.

The vision of the CSP among others covers two annual issues of her journal, two annual issues of her monograph, professional interaction in membership google group, biennial conferences and quarterly academic lecture series etc., all conceived to promote scholarly debate and inspire research in conversational thinking, African and intercultural philosophies and other areas of African studies.

Membership of CSP is therefore open to university scholars and students who are in the humanities especially in the areas like African philosophy, culture, history, languages, art, religions and studies. There is also room for scholars from other disciplines as there is philosophy in every discipline.
