This study examines the aspects of national identity as the creation, or imagination, of the self as a part of larger group, garnered and spread through various sources including relations with individuals, print sources, and personal reflection. Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines, often considered the "Father of Filipino Nationalism," is the focus of this examination. Also, this study argues that the creation of a nationalistic identity in Jose Rizal was due in part to the history of the area, and the concepts and definitions available to Rizal during his lifetime.
Rizal, Jose, 1861-1896.
