Abstract / Description of output

This is an introduction to the possibilities and tensions of a mestiza crip reading of Filipino philosophy. It is an exercise in lateral taxonomy, a practical application of liminal space logic to the task of performing a critical philosophy of disability reading of Filipino philosophical concepts. Performing the crip analysis of an article on Filipino virtue ethics that was written in dialogue with Thomistic virtues, this chapter argues that the Filipino virtues as identified by Jeremiah Reyes provide a fruitful framework to develop a theory of crip relational agency. In the spirit of Gloria Anzaldua’s “mestiza consciousness”, it is an effort to identify and distinguish what we have inherited, what we acquired, and what was imposed upon us in the conceptualisation of what counts as Filipino philosophy.
