Multidisciplinary Approach to Values Education
In my new publication entitled “Book of Virtues and Values,” I recognized the fact that the good values in a society can be fostered with the assistance of several institutions: first and foremost, the family, then the schooling system, the business sector, civil society, and mass media. I asked for the collaboration of my colleagues at the University of Asia and the Pacific and elsewhere. A novel feature of the book is the inclusion of guest articles by specialists from a wide range of disciplines, very much in line with the mission of the new Center for Research and Communication which has gone beyond its original reputation as a leading economics think tank to a research institute devoted to multidisciplinary studies. CRC has become a forum of multidisciplinary research and conferences that combine the best minds of academe, business world, government, and civil society in addressing the most relevant social issues facing the Philippines today.
