Transcript of Rizal's Philosophy

Ideals and Philosophy of Rizal Educational Philosophy Religious Philosophy No to Fire and Sword Political Philosophy Ethical Philosophy Elevate the Country Proper Motivation Proper Motivation Neglect Spanish Brutality Eliminate Social Ills Social Evils Factors that influenced Rizal's Philosophy Having been a victim of Spanish brutality, Rizal had already formed the nucleus of an unfavorable opinion of imperialistic administration of his country and people. Social evils like inferiority complex, cowardice, timidity and false pride pervaded nationality and contributed to the decay of social life.
This stimulated and shaped Rizal’s life philosophy – to be able to contain/eliminated these social ills.
Backwardness of his country is due to the neglect of the Spanish authorities in the islands.
There should be proper motivation in order to boost the great social forces that make education a success. There should be proper motivation in order to create in the youth an innate desire to cultivate intelligence. The primary reason of education is to elevate the country to the highest seat of glory and develop the people’s mentality.
To develop the masses mentally and physically. Rizal did not agree with the prevailing Christian “propagation of the Faith” by fire and sword.

He did not believe in the Catholic dogma that salvation was only for Catholics.

He did not believe in the Catholic observation of fasting as a sacrifice nor in the sale of religious items as the cross, medals, etc. in order to propagate the Faith. A conquered country, like the Philippines, should not be taken advantage of but rather should be developed, civilized, educated and trained in the science of self-government.
Censure (condemn) the friars for abusing the advantage of their position as spiritual leaders and the ignorance and fanaticism of the natives;

Censure the priests who preached greed and wrong morality; To guide them to happiness.
To transform them into prosperous, intelligent and noble people. ` He also lambasted the superstitious beliefs propagated by the priests in church and schools.
Application of reforms, extension of human rights, training for self government, arousing of spirit of discontent over oppression, brutality and inhumanity. Advise the masses that the object of marriage was the happiness and love of the couple and not for financial gain;
Advise everyone that love and respect for parents must be strictly observed Social Philosophy With every problem, there’s a distinct solution.* (SOCIAL KNOWLEDGE)
