“Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both.” – C. Wright Mills

In today’s globalized society where we are all increasingly becoming more interconnected at almost every level, it is becoming more important to understand – and be sensitive – to the unique experiences, behaviors, realities, and perceptions of others near and far. Everything we do has an impact or a consequence to something or someone else in the country and around the world. We need to know and understand this.

For instance, we need to be aware of the climatic implications of our overconsumption; the consequences of war throughout the world; how politics affect our daily lives, and to learn about other contemporary issues.

But, how do we learn and understand these contemporary issues? This is where literature comes in.

Our exposure to literature through books, poetry, and novels can support the exploration, understanding, and active engagement in today’s global realities and interconnections (environmental, political, social, cultural, and religious).

Reading books like “Mga Kontemporaryong Isyu ng Pilipinas” Judy M. Taguiwala Ph.D. can be a powerful tool as it can help people understand some of the increasingly complex issues that affect our society such as poverty, racism, inequality, etc., that continues to plague the past, present, and potentially the future.
