Understanding the Self (GEC Titles)


New product

Understanding the Self is a fundamental course in the General Education Curriculum for tertiary education. It is designed to help the students understand the nature of identity including factors that influence and shape personal identity.

Today, issues of self and identity are very critical to adolescents. This book was conceptualized to aid undergraduate students develop a more critical and reflective attitude in exploring the issues and concerns of the self and identity for a better and proper way of understanding one’s self. It emphasizes the integration of personal daily experiences of the students with their learning experiences inside the classroom to encourage them to improve themselves for a better quality of life.

This book has three major parts. The first chapter enables the students to understand the construct of the self from various disciplinal perspectives: philosophy, sociology, anthropology, and psychology including the more traditional division between the East and the West.

The second chapter deals with some of the various aspects that make up the self like the biological self, the material self, the spiritual self, the political self, and the digital self. The third and final chapter provides a discussion on some issues or concern for young students these days, which are learning, goal setting, and stress.

This book provides opportunities for students to gain new skills for practical application of the concepts learned that aim to help them become better and significant individuals of our society.

Propelled by a deep sense of mission to empower the Filipino youth, the authors embarked on writing this book as a humble contribution in building a great nation.
