The notion of man is at the center of all human problems. Obviously, every philosophy, every religion, every culture, has to take up some position here because, all has a notion particular to them with regards to the notion of man. Thus, we shall in this work, bring out the Igbo notion of the human person—the most paradoxical of all realties. The foremost significance of this work is to respond to the need of a more documented idea on the concept of man as the centre of Igbo Ontological order through the philosophical analysis of the past and present experiences of the Igbo man in his universe; and by all means contribute to knowledge and scholarship by provoking more serious thought on this subject and serving as a meaningful point of reference for anyone who wishes to carry out further researches on the subject. Using the evaluative, analytic, historical and critical research methods, this research work advances the thesis that in Igbo world-view man is conceived as the centre of Igbo Ontological order
