This is our second letter of invitation regarding the forthcoming midyear conference of the Philosophical
Association of the Philippines, Inc. (PAP). This will be held on October 24, 2003 at the Rizal Conference Hall, University
of Santo Tomas. This is co-sponsored by the Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy of the University of Santo Tomas.
The theme for this midyear conference is Philosophy and Political Responsibility. This is line with
our preparation for the coming general elections next year.
The plenary speakers for this conference are Prof. Paul Dumol, Ph.D. of the University of Asia and the Pacific
and Fr. Luis David, SJ, Ph.D. of the Ateneo de Manila University.
For this one-day affair, the pre-registration fee is P1,000.00 and on site registration is P1,200.00. The

We are also calling on members to submit papers on the said theme, to be read during the concurrent discussions.
An abstract should accompany the complete text and paper must be deliverable between 20-30 minutes. A screening committee
