Dear fellow booklovers,
We are happy to inform you that the book STELLAR ORIGINS, HUMAN WAYS,
edited by Ma. Assunta C. Cuyegkeng with contributions from the Science 10
faculty of the Loyola Schools' School of Science and Engineering, was
finalist for Natural Science at the recently held Gintong Aklat awards.
Our congratulations to the editor and the contributors!
Subtitled Readings in Science, Technology, and Society, STELLAR ORIGINS,
HUMAN WAYS brings together the writings of Genejane Adarlo, Ronald Cruz,
Ma. Henrietta Cruz, Ma. Assunta C. Cuyegkeng, Fabian Dayrit, Erwin
Enriquez, Emilyn Espiritu, Abigail Marie Favis, Jerrold Garcia, John
Holdsworth, Francis Ted Limpoco, Norman Dennis Marquez, Ma. Josefina Musa,
Gemma Teresa Narisma, Catherine Manuela Ramos, Daniel McNamara, SJ, Nina
Rosario Roxas, Lua Pottier, and Jose Ramon Villarin, SJ.
The book's essays invite both the student and the general reader to engage
with ideas on creation, discovery, and innovation; various findings
regarding the impact of technologies and practices on our human lives
(telecommunications, nanotech, genetics, packaging, smoking, food choices);
and reflections on sustainable development for the next century in the face
of present threats to the environment. The book ends with how it all
began--with an exploration of the emergence of life from the stars and the
origins of the Universe.
Since the book came out it has been used by Science 10 classes in the
university. One feedback received recently was from an alumna, science
writer Maribel Garcia: "Finished Stellar Origins, Human Ways. Wonderful
readings! Wish we had them when I was in college!!"
STELLAR ORIGINS, HUMAN WAYS is part of the Ateneo Press's Science and
Society series, with Daniel McNamara, SJ., as series editor. Copies of the
book are available at the Loyola Schools Bookstore, the Mind Museum shop,
the Ateneo Press bookshop (www.ateneopress.org), and by customer order at
Thank you, happy reading and stargazing!
