Is there a way to put into context the beliefs and actions of individuals and groups who use extreme violence in order to advance their radical views and ideologies? What are the root causes of this form of violence? Is this type of violence the new normal in the world?

The Social Ethics Society is now part of the joint national conference in philosophy that will be held in Baguio in April 2017 at St. Louis University. The annual conference will be participated in by the Philosophical Association of the Philippines, the Philosophical Association of the Visayas and Mindanao, and the Philosophical Association of Northern Luzon. The theme of the conference is "Pedagogy, Philosophy and the Liberal Arts."


Fr. Dexter Veloso, president of the SES, approved the participation recently, with the intent of collaborating with the other philosophical associations in the country. The SES was established in 2010 by the late Dr. Romulo Bautista and Prof. Christopher Ryan Maboloc. It has also its own journal, the SES Journal of Applied Philosophy, whose editor is Fr, Urbano Pardillo, Jr. The SES has since held six conferences, the last of which was at Secdea Resort in Samal Island.
