Rose Marie Yenko, a clinical psychologist, delivered her lecture on "Gifts in the Filipino Psyche" (9/22/12). Below is my reflection:
For a while, the lecture led me into wondering why introduce the class about power, ethics and accountability with a discussion about something psychological. I readily grasp the gist. Knowing the Filipino psyche, especially the collective unconscious, would prepare us to deeply understand how we view power and how we interpret what’s good and what’s not. That is, we have the basis of our ethical standards. It tells us what dictates the propensity to do things, our way.
