Faculty Research

A very important function of the Department of Philosophy is the promotion of the culture of research, in the true spirit of studia humanitatis, among the philosophy faculty members. In order to realize this, the Department has taken concrete steps to motivate the faculty members to involve themselves in the research culture of the University. Gleaned from the faculty profile (specific specializations and publications of each faculty member), the following specific areas of study are the Department’s areas of research strengths which it envisions to develop:

• Filipino Philosophy
• Oriental Thought and East-West Comparative Philosophy
• Aristotelian-Thomistic Philosophy and Scholasticism
• Continental European Philosophy
• Anglo-American Philosophy

The above areas should be taken together and considered as a singular research agenda of the various philosophy programs offered in UST. This means that, although selected faculty members will each be having their own individual research, each individual research contributes to one or two areas of strength.

The Department’s research agenda is administered or realized through the following:

• Institutional research partnership with the Research Center for Culture, Arts, and Humanities (RCCAH) and the Research Center for Religious Studies and Ethics (RCRSE)
• Publication partnership with the UST Publishing House
• Individual research of faculty
• Work-in-Progress seminars, Ph.D. inaugural lectures, M.A. peer colloquia
• Publication of institutionally supported academic journals
• Graduate and undergraduate research mentorship system
