In general, this research sought to determine the motives and philosophical perspectives of the late President Corazon “Cory” C. Aquino as reflected in three of her speeches. Using the lens of Burke’s Dramatism Theory through Pentadic Analysis, this study found that agent dominates among all the other terms in her three speeches which shows that she saw agent as the most important of all the other elements in her speeches. The ideas that fall under agent were categorised by the researcher into four, namely: (1) the Filipino people, (2) Cory Aquino herself, (3) Ferdinand Marcos, and (4) Ninoy Aquino. Agent, being the most dominant term in her speeches further reveals that Cory Aquino was an idealist. Finally, the findings of this study would definitely provide the Filipinos an in-depth understanding about Cory Aquino’s ideals, beliefs, and values – being one of the most important figures of democracy in Philippines and world history.
