    Service-learning and community : a case study of a university audio-book program for the blind 

    Chavakorn Techakesari; Kajornpat Tangyin (Assumption University Press, 2019)

    University courses in ethics are designed to help a student develop their moral character. But while classroom work provides students with knowledge, it is often not sufficient for deeper character development. The students also need some sort of practical engagement with people in their surrounding communities. This interaction creates both individual reflection and social awareness. Service-learning is a program which encourages the participants to learn and develop their moral characters through working in the community. During this...

    Towards a Neo-Aristotelian account of philosophical counseling 

    Thesigan Nadarajan; Clark, Michael (Assumption University Press, 2019)

    At present, there is no generally accepted account of what philosophical counselling is or why we should practice it.

I argue that this concept provides an apt description of what philosophical counselling, in many cases, consists in. One benefit of construing philosophical counselling in terms of Eudaimonia is that it provides a natural justification for the practice: since it is plausible that Eudaimonia is...

Bitcoin presents a new system of transaction which does not require governments or middlemen to regulate trade. Since such currencies are completely beyond s...

    Caturay, Warlito Jr. Sanchez (Assumption University Press, 2019)

    Complaining is one of the difficult tasks one has to do because when one complains, one does not only express some displeasure but also expects some form of repair. Hence, it is important for language learners to be taught how to effectively do so. Despite this, the teaching of the speech act of complaint has been taken for granted: either very little is included or it is absent in the language classroom instruction. This study attempts to examine how Filipino ESL learners structure their complaints. Featuring 18 situations calibrated on ...
