Notes This book traces the role of liberal philosophy in the building of a new nation. Extricating liberalism from the haze of anti-modernist and anti-European caricature, it examines the role of toleration, rights, and mediation in the postcolony. Through the biographies of four Filipino scholar-bureaucrats--Camilo Osias, Salvador Araneta, Carlos P. Romulo, and Salvador P. Lopez--Lisandro E. Claudio argues that liberal thought served as the grammar of Filipino democracy in the 20th century. By looking at various articulations of liberalism in pedagogy, international affairs, economics, and literature, Claudio not only narrates an obscured history of the Philippine state, he also argues for a new liberalism rooted in the postcolonial experience.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 204-220) and index.
