Filipino Philosophy Of Education

While relatively unknown outside the country, Filipino philosophy is gaining more attention among scholars, educators, and philosophy communities in the Philippines. This growing discussion generates analysis of the various facets substantiating what is ‘organic’ and distinct about Filipino philosophy. One major aspect of interest in Filipino philosophy is education. Reflecting on the nature, aims, and problems of education, Filipino philosophy of education investigates philosophical issues and emerging trends of philosophical thinking in education which are distinctive to the Filipino context. Filipino philosophy of education has a rich potential that encompasses revisiting cultural and historical narratives, considering inclusivity, re-evaluating the educational system, challenging existing pedagogies, and re-discovering indigeneity (Opiniano et al., forthcoming). In this context it is worth exploring further.

This call for papers invites philosophical and theoretical reflections that bring to the fore the state of Filipino philosophy of education, and discussions about the nature of Filipino cultural, political, and intellectual heritage: its roots and influences, sources in indigenous philosophy, Filipino vernaculars (such as the use of mother tongue language in education), the postcolonial context of the nation, intersecting contemporary trends in the philosophy and education, or other explorations that emphasize what is distinctive and significant in the Filipino experience, in relation to the country’s unique history as well as international conversations and global challenges faced today.

In particular, contributions that delve into the following questions are welcome:

  • What is the state of Filipino philosophy of education?
  • What are the intersections between Filipino philosophy and philosophy of education?
  • What is unique about Filipino philosophy of education within a global context?
  • What is the future of Filipino philosophy of education?
