By Resil B. Mojares (Author)

Grounded in a detailed analvsis of the lives and works of Pedro Paterno, T. H. Pardo de Tavera, and Isabelo de los Reyes, the book is a richly textured portrait of a generation that created the self-consciousness of the Filipino nation. It explores the historical conditions that shaped the emergence of a modern Philippine intelligentsia and the unfinished, strange, and wondrous itineraries diverse intellectuals took in engaging Western knowledge and dealing with the local realities of the country from, af, and for which they tried or pretended to speak. Brains of the Nation is a groundbreaking work in Philippine intellectual history.
