Abstract

Logic is related to thought and truth; and reality is related to consciousness and knowledge. There is no gainsaying that logic is indeed related to understanding, which has to do with language and meaning. This paper wants to examine the logic question in Igbo-African understanding, and in order to do that it will examine the issue of rationality as some writers claimed that Africans are prelogical, and examine too the epistemic categories which the traditional Africans used in the bid to get at knowledge; and understanding through the use of sentences.

Key words: Rationality, logic, understanding, meaning
