The article is concerned with certain aspects of contemporary philosophy in the Spanish speaking community. It reports on three of the most important meetings of philosophers which took place on the occasion of the one-hundredth anniversary 1898-1998 in Spain and in Latin America. Attention is paid in particular to the first Ibero-American Philosophical Congress; in light of its significance, a full translation of Luis Villor's inaugural address is here included. The appendix adverts to numerous errors in Pavel Stepánek's article 'The Role of Spain in Understanding and Spreading Classical Philosophy' and presents critical remarks about it.
