Brains of the Nation looks closely at the lives and works of Pedro Paterno, T.H. Pardo de Tavera, and Isabelo de los Reyes, as Dr. Mojares portrays a generation that created the self-consciousness of the Filipino nation.
As it traces the production of modern knowledge, the book explores the historical conditions that shaped the emergence of a modern Philippine intelligentsia and the unfinished, strange, wondrous itineraries diverse intellectuals took in engaging Western knowledge and dealing with the local realities of the country from, of, and for which they tried to speak.
Dr. Mojares is Professor Emeritus at the University of San Carlos in Cebu, and is author of several books on history and culture.
Brains of the Nation: Pedro Paterno, T.H. Pardo de Tavera, Isabelo de los Reyes and the Production of Modern Knowledge, available in most bookstores, is among the titles sold at a discount in the Christmas booksale at the University Press bookshop, ongoing until December 15 (8 to 12, 1 to 6, M-Th; 8-12, 1-5, Fri).
