ABSTRACT:

Global sociopolitical order in Africa as elsewhere is something that must worry any sane and sensitive mind. Sociopolitical disorder, anarchy, and chaos (which are antithetical to sociopolitical order), can give no person joy, peace, and rest. The urge to establish sociopolitical order, as it was in earliest centuries of rational man, is a serious concern for many who keenly follow the unfolding of events in the third millennium A. D. Just as this concern gave birth to Plato’s conception and proposal of the philosopher- king as a panacea, so our earnest search for the conditions of global sociopolitical order has directed us to the necessity and responsibilities of the philosopher-educator before even the philosopher-king’s role becomes germane. Consequently, this paper devotes attention to the examination of the concept and onus of the philosopher-educator in the third millennium A. D
