If you wish to succeed, you should use persistence as your good friend, experience as your reference, prudence as your brother and hope as your sentry.

Yes, Rizal was a philosopher. Though he was not the typical philosopher we usually know who likes to construct a profound ideas ended up in a philosophical system like Hegel, Plato, Aristotle, etc. He is a philosopher who introduces his thought through literary works like the philosopher who, at the same, received a Nobel Prize in literature: Sartre, Camus, Bertrand Russell. Sartre's makes the embodiment of his philosophical thoughts in Being and Nothingness in some of his play and novels. Likewise, Rizal puts his ideology in his two novels such as his idea of political freedom-liberation, the importance of education as he was influenced by the French Enlightenment thinkers like Rousseau and Voltaire, putting more importance on human or liberal sciences rather than on the mere focus of religious authoritarianism at his time, his idea of nationalism and many more.

I believe the study of philosophy to be critically important. It is the words we live by and they should not be taken lightly. To do so we end up with paradoxes, people killing for peace, oppressive and corrupt governments boasting of freedom and democracy when they are clearly nothing more than fascist oligarchs that rule by terror. The flaws of human nature are scrutinized by the philosopher. Philosophy is in everything we do, it is our attitude in the way we undertake anything. So absent these days is a sincere Socratic dialogue, as though we have given in to personal agendas and the idea of evolving as a species has become diluted into meaningless slogans, pop culture and materialism. I think people should really examine their philosophies (Persian Warrior for instance if he is in fact a warrior which i doubt, should consider the philosophy of the warrior, its many noble aspects, and while I'm on it the noble philosophers of the Persian empire, for instance Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Rumi was one of my favorites). I'm very curious of the philosophers listed here, I'm hoping to learn more about Indigenous philosophies, The Igorots, Bisayans, etc..I think the list here is certainly valid and to understand why, it is important to understand what a philosophy is and why it is so critically important.

Upon reading your comments, I conclude that you should first understand philosophy before making comments.

When we ask what is philosophy, meaning to say we wonder. Like Rizal, a man who wonders, asking right questions almost everything and achieve remarkable works.

11/16/2015 05:52:14 pm

philosophy is our everyday way of living, regardless of who, what,and where you coming from. we should not understand philosophy based on the writings of people ahead of us but rather, we have to understand what is in the present. ......good life...good philosophy......

What is philosophy then in simple way we think and feel? Well, based on the very nature of man, as a thinking being, as a being with a mind that could be rational or irrational, as a man who could think logically or illogically, philosophy is the result of our mind process of thought. The product of the human mind could be good or bad, true or false. Then, philosophy as the product of the human mind, could be evaluated in that same manner: good or bad, right or wrong, true or false. Philosophy is indispensable in our life as our mind is indispensable in our activities of living. What then is the generally accepted philosophy of the Filipinos today? Since most of the Filipinos are religious or have some beliefs in supernatural, then most of their philosophical ideas are derived from that. I would consider religion and beliefs as a basic philosophy, too. Because it is the product of the early human perspective about the nature of things in reality. And since Christianity was brought to us by the foreigners like Spaniards, Americans and Japanese, it became our philosophy too. that took influence in our mentality and put into works in our own individual life. Most of those religious idea and philosophical ideas derived from it came from the west, it was thought that we were westernized then. However, before they came, our ancestors were philosophers too in their own simple way as they thought and live and works which was no different from the western ideas--the belief in the concept God, in the supernatural being. In short, that is philosophy.
