Acts of Magis: Ateneans in the Service of Society featuring "Crossings in our Science Journey" 2020-07-30


30 July 2020 at 3:00 PM

Webinar Link: facebook.com/ateneodemanila

Speaker: Fr Jose Ramon T Villarin SJ

We all face crossroads along the way. Some paths are taken with careful deliberation, others out of serendipity. This session is just an informal sharing of paths I have taken that have led me to where I am now, a Jesuit who happens to be a scientist who turned into an administrator and is now hoping to be missioned back to science. The hope is that in this time of quarantine we will find time to ponder the choices (serendipitous or otherwise) that we have made and that continue to make us. Pondering the paths we've taken and imagining alternate trajectories (or universes) can deepen our wonder and gratitude on our way homeward (wherever home is).

In 2001, he edited a book titled "Disturbing Climate" which was conferred the National Book Award (Sciences) by the Manila Critics Circle, the National Book Development Board, and later in 2002 by the NAST.
