The book aims to use a philosophical lens to explore the possibilities of building a democratic Philippine nation-state, given the diversity of our people. In this series of reflections, we dialogue with the work of political scientists, sociologists, and anthropologists who study Philippine political culture, as well as with advocates of Philippine democratic reform, in order to reflect on their praxis and experience . . . [and] hope to articulate the principle of governance that may bind us as a people with a shared will for the common good.
