Resumen

OLOJEDE, Funlola O.. Woman Wisdom and the ethical vision of the book of Proverbs: An African reflection. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-06. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v71i3.2846.

An observable gap in scholarship is a comprehensive ethical reflection on the portrayal of wisdom as feminine in the book of Proverbs and its implication for wisdom ethics. Besides this lacuna is the observation that the few existing studies on the ethics of the book of Proverbs take their point of departure essentially from a Western conception of ethics. This article has approached the book of Proverbs from an ethical perspective and has argued that the African view of ethics has a rich quality embedded in communitarian values that can be explored heuristically to interpret the ethical vision of the book of Proverbs. Such an approach, it is suggested, has pedagogical relevance to the teaching of biblical ethics especially in Africa.
