Abstract

© 2018 University of the Philippines. All rights reserved. Emerita Quito and Mary John Mananzan are two of the leading Filipina philosophers of contemporary times. By using the dialogical hermeneutics of Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer, this paper aims at a deeper understanding of their thoughts through a critical comparison. Such a critical comparison focuses on their respective: (1) places among the twelve discourses of Filipino philosophy, (2) methods of philosophizing, (3) reflections on Filipino philosophy, and (4) thoughts on the Philippine society. To attain these goals, this paper contains three substantive sections dealing with: (1) the philosophy of Quito, (2) the philosophy of Mananzan, and (3) the critical comparison of their philosophies.
