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.

The most convincing argument that supports the thesis of the book, i.e. that population growth is a poitive factor in attaining sustainable human development, is found in the foreword to the book, which is adopted from an article written by Mr. Roberto de Ocampo, former Finance Secretary of the Philippines and multi-awarded finance official in Asia. Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
