This is a textbook for student like mine whose knowledge in philosophy is rather scanty. I have tried to be as simple as possible without hopefully falling into the error of over-simplication. It is my hope that each student at the end of the course Will come to realize the true nature of philosophy and philosophical inquiry; Is knowledgeable about man and his existence in the world; Is particularly concerned about values: About man’s truth, freedom, death, Relations with God and others; and Is oriented towards a constant philosophical Evaluation of man. Part I is about philosophy; Part II is about man. The chapter on the Oriental perspective on man is in response to the oft-repeated observation that our view of man is usually one-sided in favor of the West. If the treatment of the course is incomplete or not comprehensive enough, just remember the time frame is only one semester. This is a revised edition. The changes, additions mostly, are inputs from friends and faculty members from various schools teaching the course. For instance, I have given capsule annotations to some of the philosophers I emotion in the historical outline in Chapter Six. There are additions in commentaries on Values, Work and death.   4 x I have presented a simpler version of the article of Dr Ramon C. Reyes, “Philosophy in a Crisis Situation,” and an addendum to Dr. Magdalena Alonso –   Villaba’s eastern philosophies, including a short essay on Islam Since the topic of the human being and his environment is the “in” thing now, I am happy to include excerpts from the article on this by Sister Mary Soledad Perpinan, R.G.S., a personal witness to the Rio de Janerio Earth Summit. ` I have added a reflection page at the end of each chapter at the suggestion of Arts Dean Leovino Ma. Garcia of the Ateneo de Manila University who found the reflection pages in my book, Contemporary Ethics, “provocative”.  I wish to thank all those who helped me in one way or another, especially my sister Flor, my typist, and the National Book Store Publishing Staff. And I wish to thank my contributors whose immediate and generous response is most heart-warming and is a testimony of their friendship.
