Leonardo da Jandra, writer and philosopher from Chiapas, presented his book “Hispanic Heritage, Celebration and Ritual: A Defense of Our Identity in the Global Context” at the Urban and Regional Planning Department of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM).

Accompanied by Noel Pineda Jaimes, Director of Academic Infrastructure at UAEM, Da Jandra said that the difference between one culture and another lies in their festivals, rituals, customs, traditions, language and beliefs. He added that the cornerstone of the book is the rethinking of our identity, that is, who we are, where we come from and where are we going.

Da Jandra said that the book recognizes the great works that have give Mexicans their identities, such as “El Laberinto de la Soledad” (“The Labyrinth of Solitude”) by Octavio Paz, “México Profundo” (“Deep Mexico”) by Guillermo Bonfil Batalla, “El Perfil del Hombre y la Cultura en México” (“Man’s Profile and Culture in Mexico”) by Samuel Ramos and “Filosofía de lo Mexicano” (“Philosophy of the Mexican”) by Abelardo Villegas.

“It is a book about those works, with the aim of placing the reader in the current context and, hence, project a certain overcoming determination of what is Mexican in the future,” said Da Jandra.
