Society for Mexican-American Philosophy

Mission Statement

This society is dedicated to the support and promotion of Mexican-American philosophy in all of its diverse manifestations.  It seeks to provide a venue for inquiry into philosophical issues that are of particular concern for Mexican-Americans and, more broadly, persons of Latin American descent. To this end, the society is particularly interested in social justice issues (e.g. imperialism, colonization, immigration, civil and human rights, race, gender, discrimination, and language) as well as issues pertaining to identity and citizenship in its various forms (e.g. social, political, or cultural).  This society also supports historical and contemporary research on Mexican philosophy, including the philosophies of Mexico’s indigenous peoples and current work on indigeneity.  Lastly, this society supports scholars who are or wish to become actively engaged in their communities by providing a venue to present civically-engaged scholarship.
