Paper Abstract

The Geological Foundation and the Beginnings of the Filipino Society and Culture During the Pre-Spanish Period in the Philippines

The beginnings of the Filipino society and culture can be viewed from the geological and paleontological studies conducted by Jocano in his book Philippines Pre- History: An Anthropological overview of the Beginnings of the Filipino Society and  Culture provided comprehensive discussion along these areas. He viewed that  tracing the emergence of man and the development of his culture in the Philippines is a complex task.It requires an inter-disciplinary approach. That is, data from disciplines other than archaeology are also important in shedding light on the intricate problem of reconstructing pre-historic lifeways. Furthermore, he mentioned that prehistoric cultures were as much products adaptation to specific ecological niches as contemporary cultures are. This eventually led the structuring of the Filipino society and culture  until finally made contacts with the Asian neighbors. The natural setting he presented also provided a comprehensive background about the geological foundation of  the Philippines.1

The Comparative Geologic Time Scale in the Study of Geological Foundation of the Philippines
