Volume 1: The History and Development of Social Science Disciplines in the Philippines

Edited by: Virginia A. Miralao

The first volume of the Philippine Social Sciences in the Life of the Nation focuses on the beginnings, growth and contributions of the different social science disciplines (i.e., anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, sociology, communication, demography, linguistics, public administration, social work, and statistics) in the Philippines. The articles note that the Philippine social sciences, which took root in the country under American tutelage at the turn of the century, have progressed beyond their colonial past and the partisan social activism that characterized much of the country’s political, economic and social life in the subsequent period of decolonization. Filipino social scientists have contributed much to the analysis of social trends and unfolding events, and to the intellectual debates that accompany the shaping of the country’s identity and nationhood. Moreover, they have greatly enriched the country’s knowledge base on its people, history, culture and institutions. The articles also cite the new challenges confronted by the Philippine social sciences and their practitioners.
