CULTURAL PHILOSOPHY: AFRICAN AND FILIPINO DIMENSIONS

Rolando M. Gripaldo

 

Abstract:

This paper traces the development of “cultural philosophy,” distinguishes it from the “philosophy of culture,” discusses African and Filipino philosophical dimensions, and then makes the concluding remarks. This paper argues that while cultural philosophy is a significant development in the history of ideas, any given culture must opt to develop its own philosophical tradition.
