FILOSOFÍA MEXICANA: UN LUGAR DE OBSERVACIÓN
This paper claims that a philosophical tradition is forged through an active endeavor to make associations and engage in story-telling. A tradition, in other words, is constructed or invented, not discovered. The author considers the development of Mexican philosophy as a case in point and argues that this way of conceiving of a philosophical tradition is both more accurate and more fruitful.

DECOLONIALIZATION DEGREE ZERO: ON EDMUNDO O’GORMAN, PHILOSOPHICAL ADJACENCY AND THE GENEALOGIES OF MEXICAN THOUGHT
This essay discusses the work of Edmundo O’Gorman in connection to the idea of “philosophical adjacency,” that is, the work of a historian who engages in philosophical questions concerning the historical being of Mexico and Latin America. The essay speaks of a “decolonization degree zero” in O’Gorman, claiming that his work provided a philosophical opening to challenge the epistemology and ontology of coloniality in a way that renders possible a genealogy of work along this line.

BENHABIB AND VILLORO
Contrasting two models of deliberative democratic multiculturalism, one by Seyla Benhabib and another by Luis Villoro, this paper contends that the differences between these two models outweigh the similarities, and that Villoro’s model is more promising insofar as it preserves the trust required in the institutions that mediate democratic deliberation in multicultural societies.

ROSARIO CASTELLANOS AT PHILOSOPHY’S DOORSTEP
This essay claims that the writings of Rosario Castellanos have unjustly been kept out of the philosophical canon, largely because of gender bias. It argues further that we ought to approach her literary contributions as valuable albeit untraditional sources of philosophical thought.
