Social Acceptance as a Philippine Cultural Theme

The concern of the study was the value system found in the lowland Philippines, with the principles, aims, and convictions that seem to be at work in the behavior one observes in this society. One should not expect every value to be uniquely Filipino because notable differences in value systems are caused not so much as differences in the individual values as by the differences in ranking and emphasis. The term “social acceptance” was defined as being taken by one’s fellows for what one is, or believes he is, and being treated in accordance with his status.
