  author={Z{\'e}lia Roelofse-Campbell},
It is with sadness that we learned of the passing of the eminent Mexican philosopher and Latin American scholar Leopoldo Zea on 8 June 2004, a few weeks before his 92nd birthday. Zea has influenced a great number of Latin American academics. He was the founder of a school of Latin American philosophy and identity and was committed to the creation of academic associations.
