August 2, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
8:30 am – 10:00 am Coronado
“Kapwa” is the indigenous Pilipino term denoting a person’s sense of identification with another person or persons. Enriquez (1994) proposed that it is the core of Filipino personhood. In this paper, the role of “kapwa” in the formation and maintenance of Filipino-American social organizations will be examined. Illustrations will demonstrate that this role is both facilitative and constrictive. In addition, the role of Filipino-American social organizations in the development of “kapwa” will be assessed. Last, drawing from both Sikolohiyang Pilipino theory and research, as well as from Confucian theorizing on development of the self, the development of “kapwa” will be elucidated.
