  • Description:

    Late Reactions humbly offers alternative viewpoints, through philosophical reasoning, on contemporary Filipino issues like: Why does a Filipino say "On the Way na Ako" when in fact he has not yet left the house? Why is a Filipino told: "Ubusin mo yan maraming hindi kumakain"? Does the word "salvage" really mean "to kill"? Why does a Filipino use the word "local" to mean "not original"? What does it mean when a Filipino says: "Wala pang 5 minutes"? Why is it that a Filipino gets too emotional in singing the "Lupang Hinirang" when Manny Pacquiao has a fight? Why does Reyes Hair Cutters prefer to write Php 49.99 instead of Php 50.00 or Php 249.99 instead of 250.00? why does the Jeepney driver insist on "sampuan" when it should just be "siyaman"?

    Philosophy finds it relevance in all cultures, times, and circumstances. And that those who live by it are one step nearer to what Aristotle calls, "The Good Life."
