In 1998 a group of scholars with Catholic, Anglican and Jewish background gathered at a symposium to review Humanae vitae 30 years after its publication. On the 40-year anniversary of Humanae vitae in 2008, the issues raised in that controversial encyclical letter still border and affect humans especially in the light of modern scientific and biotechnological development. This book is a contribution to that debate in the sense of being unbiased and from an African perspective meant to balance the "sense and insensibilities" from both polarities of the world. It is an X-ray through a hermeneutical-anthropological "Weltanschauung" (worldview) of the Igbo of Southeastern Nigeria.
