Paper Title
Education in Virtue: Classical Scholarship in a Philippine Context

Making use of classical Greek texts, in this paper we try to explore certain supposed values that operate as moral norms within many Philippine contexts. As sample explorations of this type, first, the Filipino notion of hiya or shame is considered in view of this dynamic already present in The Iliad and The Odyssey of Homer; second, the Filipino notion of pagkalalaki or manliness is explored through a consideration of the examination of andreia in Plato’s Laches.
