About this topic
Summary

This category comprises works written from a variety of different perspectives that explore a wide range of problems and arguments through the eyes of Latin American philosophers. Many of these works raise questions that are closely related to the history of Latin American thought and culture, including the reflections of Hispanic philosophers on issues of race, values, and their own ethnic and cultural identity. On the other hand, some of the questions that puzzle Latin American philosophers are the same ones that have bedeviled philosophers in the Western tradition (the nature of mind, God, justice, etc.).  In their attempts to answer questions of both sorts, Latin American philosophers have offered alternative perspectives that will be of interest to readers seeking to learn more about the history of philosophical ideas in the West, but also to those curious about some issues characteristic of Latin American thought.

Key works

A recurrent topic in Latin American philosophy is that of identity, understood in two different ways. One concerns the cultural, racial, and ethnic identity of Latin Americans and their descendants abroad, and on this subject an influential view is that proposed by Jorge Gracia in his “Is Being Hispanic an Identity?” (Garcia 2001). The other concerns the identity of Latin American philosophy as a distinctive kind of philosophy. On this topic, Susana Nuccetelli offers an overview of the main positions, together with her own proposal, in her “Is ‘Latin American Philosophy’ Philosophy?”  (Nuccetelli 2003). 

Introductions

There are some current collections of original sources in Latin American philosophy offering historical and thematic selections (for example, Gracia & Millán-Zaibert 2004 and Nuccetelli & Seay 2003). In these collections the reader will also find introductions by the editors that will provide some guidance through the discipline for those unfamiliar with it. For overviews of the main topics and arguments in Latin American philosophy, see the Blackwell Companion to Latin American Philosophy (Nuccetelli et al 2010). On the foundations of Latin American philosophy, see the forthcoming entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy by Susana Nuccetelli.

    En este trabajo propongo realizar un recorrido acerca de la utilización del concepto de mito en la obra de Carlos Astrada. En primer lugar analizaré sus obras tempranas en donde el filósofo encuentra en la Revolución Rusa la expresión del mito de la humanidad que ha emergido para llevar a ésta hacia su plenitud. Luego tomaré en consideración su obra El Mito Gaucho, la cual constituye una interpretación del Martín Fierro como expresión del mito de los argentinos. Seguidamente me referiré (...)

    : In this paper I will examine two conceptions of philosophy that were defended in Latin America during the last century. I believe that both models have to be put away and that we must build a new one, recovering elements of both of them. At the end of my paper I will consider very briefly what can we learn from this in order to construct a genuine philosophical dialogue between the United States and Latin America.

    El presente trabajo de Alex Ibarra Peña recoge los resultados de una investigación cuyo tema es la constitución de un campo de estudios ligado a la filosofía analítica en Chile. El autor se propone una tarea informativa y crítica en la que cifra la novedad de su propuesta. En otros términos, la suya es una labor de rescate, de algunos filósofos y corrientes de pensamiento relegados en las narraciones hegemónicas de la institucionalización de la filosofía en Chile y una tarea (...)

    This volume contains the most extensive exposition of Latin American philosophy to date. I know of no other comparable anthology on the subject in any language. The width of its scope is quite impressive. At least for this reason, and whatever its shortcomings might be (to some of them I’ll come to speak below), it is a welcome collective work.
