About this topic
Summary This category includes works on topics that bear on the nature of Latin American philosophy. Latin American philosophers have often been interested in elucidating what exactly is Latin American philosophy. In discussing this question, they developed a number of proposals that could be classified as representative of either distinctivism, universalism or a mixed view. 
Key works

Among the issues often considered foundational in Latin American philosophy are the so-called invisibility problem and the originality problem. An obstacle to the development of a characteristically Latin American philosophy include the fact that many creative philosophical thinkers in Latin American are not philosophers by training. And there is also the issue of establishing the historical origins of the discipline.

    This paper studies in detail about the early years of José Gaos (1900- 1969) and his education in philosophy and literature. Therefore, we know that their studies (academic or not) were not purely “philosophical” in 1915. Literature and philosophy played in Gaos an equally important role. The first real encounter with philosophy happens before he comes to Valencia in 1915; but in this year Gaos also receives a strong education, in aesthetic and literary, through press and philosophical journals, and especially (...)

    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 (...)

    El presente artículo intenta mostrar la forma particular que el humanismo adoptó en el desarrollo del pensamiento latino-americano. Las condiciones históricas del continente (dependencia económica, política y social primero de España, y luego de Europa y de Norteamérica) han sido causa determinante para que la filosofía latinoamericana haya oscilado hacia la ideología en detrimento del aspecto científico, y ha marcado también la búsqueda de autenticidad y especificidad en el discurso filosófico.

    : 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.
