Roque Ferriols, S.J. has left his mark on several generations of philosophy students from the Ateneo de Manila University. Fondly known as "Padre Roque" to later generations of students, Ferriols can be credited with almost single-handedly promoting the teaching of philosophy in Filipino. More important and more lasting, however, is his determination to impart the necessity of pagmumuni-muni--of genuine thinking on one's situation, to his students. He has taught--and still continues to teach--at the Ateneo de Manila for more than 40 years.
