Philippine Geography

Philippine Geography Image

The discipline of geography, often referred to as the “universal science” and/or the “mother of natural and social sciences,” has experienced a cyclical pattern of development from antiquity up to modern times. Periods of growth and prestige alternated with those of lassitude and prosaism. It appears that geography often reflects the changing interests and concerns of people throughout recorded history. This paper discusses this global cyclical development of geography and the consequent development and state of the discipline in the Philippines. It may be said that geography has also developed parallel local patterns and expressions reflecting the goals of particular historical periods as well as the interests and values of its practitioners. In particular, this historical recounting will include the reasons for geography’s low profile in some areas of the world and a discussion of its current status and potential in the Philippines and how this status can be enhanced and this potential realized.
