Timbreza releases Filipino Philosophy book

Philosophy professor Dr. Florentino Timbreza recently released his book titled Quest for Meaning, Philosophy Made Easy for Filipinos. The book offers a broad and basic understanding of philosophy designed to aid the Filipino student in the search for the meaning of existence.

The theories of the world’s great philosophers are explained in simple and easy-to-understand English and in one-liners in Filipino. Topics included are origin of the world, knowledge, morality, freedom, soul, God, evil, and death. Interspersed liberally are sayings in various vernaculars, including Ivatan, Ilocano, Cebuano, Tausug, Maranao, Bicolano, Boholano, Pampango, Ibanag, Ilonggo, Tagalog, among other dialects to inculturate and contextualize certain philosophical insights in the Filipino experience.

Philippine Journal publishes De Castro’s article

The Philippine Political Science Journal recently published an article on the Spratly Islands by Political Science faculty Renato De Castro. The article, “Probing The Legality of the PRC’s Claim over the Spratly Islands,” argues that China’s notion of historic claim to the Spratly Archipelagoes has no legal basis under international law.

De Castro’s articles have been published in the United States, Germany, Singapore, and Taiwan. He is currently working on his dissertation on US Alliance Management in East Asia as a Robert Barnet Fellow in the University of South Carolina.
