  1. What We Talk About When We Talk About Nepantla: Gloria Anzaldúa and the Queer Fruit of Aztec Philosophy.Marcos de R. Antuna - forthcoming - Journal of Latinos and Education 16.
    A particular 21st century understanding of the Aztec concept nepantla, one which has recently taken hold in critical education thanks to the writings of Gloria Anzaldúa, does not accurately reflect traditional Aztec history and philosophy. This essay reveals why this is the case, demonstrating in detail the meaning of nepantla within the broader Aztec ontology. It then asks education researchers and practitioners to instead use the theoretical framework of malinalli, the Aztec philosophical concept which best aligns with transformative social justice (...)

  2. The Aztec Concept of Malinalli and LGBT Pedagogical Lives.Marcos de R. Antuna - 2016 - Radical Pedagogy 13 (2):119-129.
    The foundational concepts of traditional Aztec metaphysics can benefit relations between LGBT students and teachers and their heterosexual peers. Because LGBT students and teachers suffer academic grievances at rates which their straight colleagues do not, they are in need of sound mechanisms for redress. The ethical stances implicit in the Aztec ontological simple teotl and the three motion-changes through which it acts – olin, malinalli, and nepantla – offer novel ways of approaching positive socialization between groups with differing social qualities (...)

    El artículo a partir de fuentes iconográficas, estudia la sustitución de los símbolos imperiales españoles por nuevos símbolos republicanos a principios del siglo XIX, destacando obras como las alegorías de la libertad y la patria para el caso colombiano. Estos emblemas tuvieron su origen en las representaciones de América del siglo XVI, pero con las autonomías y las posteriores independencias se convierten en los primeros símbolos de identidad de las nacientes repúblicas. The article, based on iconographic sources, studies the substitution (...)

    Las culturas maya, azteca e inca habían desarrollado hasta el S. XVI originales y complejas estructuras de pensamiento. La superposición de la cultura europea hizo posible el traslado de la filosofía, que tiene ya una presencia ininterrumpida de más de cuatro siglos y medio. Sin embargo, ese proceso filosófico, visto desde la perspectiva de la problemática indígena actual, evidencia que no ha podido lograrse todavía, a través de la reflexión, una síntesis armoniosa que exprese los legados culturales indígena y occidental.

  15. Philosophical Reflections on the Conquest of Mexico.Alberto Hernández-Lemus - 2005 - Teaching Philosophy 28 (2):135-153.
    The author describes a peripatetic course aiming at undermining ethnocentric biases that are at the root of certain failures of miscommunication. The course involves a description of two semiotic models and their application to cases of communication involving radical cultural difference, specifically the interpretive efforts of both conquering Spaniards and conquered Native Americans. Since the Peircean semiotic model requires a contextual-understanding of the Other in order for successful communication, the author contends that it is necessary for philosophy courses to be (...)

  21. Why Care About Nezahualcoyotl? Veritism and Nahua Philosophy.James Maffie - 2002 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 32 (1):71-91.
    Sixteenth-century Nahua philosophy understands neltiliztli (truth) and tlamitilizli (wisdom, knowledge) nonsemantically in terms of a complex notion consisting of well-rootedness, alethia ,authenticity, adeptness, moral righteousness, beauty, and balancedness. In so doing, it offers compelling a posteriori grounds for denying what Alvin Goldman calls veritism .Veritism defends the universality of correspondence (semantic) truth as well as the universal centrality of correspondence (semantic) truth to epistemology. Key Words: truth • veritism • Nahua philosophy • Aztec philopsophy • mesoamerican philosophy • teotl • (...)

    This paper continues a dialogue begun in the Focus on Cosmogony and Religious Ethics published in JRE 14/1 (Spring, 1986). There Charles Reynolds and Ronald Green argued for a model of comparative religious ethics that seeks to locate certain "descriptive universals" across cultural boundaries in diverse forms of religious ethics. The present paper argues that this approach is dangerously imbalanced in its emphasis on similarities, ignoring the importance of diversity for interpreting cross-cultural phenomena and tending to impose a heterogeneous conceptual (...)

    Two oppositional, yet complementary, sets of myths are presented here. These sets appear based on a concept of transformation which implies that the cosmos will collapse if a paradigm of human sacrifice is not followed-a paradigm for moral action utilized by Aztec kings in an amoral universe requiring constant nourishment. Models of this paradigm are seen to shape ethical decisions in two different examples: (a) crises of drought, and (b) problems of childraising. It is suggested that this moral and ethical (...)
