Bioethics Class in 2011
Bioethics Class 2014
How does a teacher create teaching moments? Bring the class over to the infamous Manila Zoo and hope for the best. Seriously though, the Zoo presents a lot of ethical issues like: should animals be used solely for human purposes, which include entertainment? What constitutes humane treatment of animals? Although both visits left me with a heavy heart because of the sad state of the animals housed in there, those sweet smiles from students (a matter of course when Filipinos pose for pictures) in these photos make me smile a bit. Should we give some love to the Manila Zoo? It’s a complicated question, which deserves a long thoughtful answer. One one hand, we deplore the sad plight of animals; on the other hand, we recognize and acknowledge the reality that for many poor people in the city of Manila, it is the only place where they can encounter exotic animals from faraway lands firsthand. Ethics demand justice, and justice—both for animals and people—deserve to be factored in when one makes an ethical consideration on this case. Justice and love go together, always.

One of the best animated tutorials on the Big Bang!
It looks like an explosion from an 80s game, but you’re looking at the first direct proof of the event that started the Universe—the Big Bang. Those black lines represent the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background, which “could have been produced by gravitational waves created by inflation” as predicted by Einstein. If confirmed, it could be one of the biggest scientific discoveries in history.

Okaaaay, tongue in cheek, because I can picture you with your eyes rolling and your mouth gaping wide:) On a serious note though, there have been multiple studies that show that a degree in Philosophy may be one of the best things to have in this world dominated by business and technology. Contrary to false impressions of it as impractical, superfluous, esoteric, and the like, Philosophy offers you valuable tools to help you think critically, develop ability to ask and answer open-ended questions, and enhance your skills to see patterns of thoughts, worldviews, beliefs etc that might have gone unnoticed to untrained mind.
Here’s an article from Huffington Post on the The Unexpected Way Philosophy Majors Are Changing The World Of Business. Here is another one: Is Philosophy the Most Practical Major?
