About Me

Hi, I am Dr. Jeffry Ocay. I am currently an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Silliman University, Dumaguete City, Philippines, and Coordinator of the Villanova Institute for Research in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Economics at San Agustin University, Iloilo City, Philippines.

I obtained my PhD in Philosophy from Macquarie Unviersity, Sydney, Australia and a postdoctorate from Goethe University Frankfurt am Main (Frankfurt University), Germany. I obtained two master’s degrees, one in Philosophy from the University of San Carlos in Cebu City and another in History from Silliman University. I also obtained two bachelor’s degrees, one in Philosophy and another in Political Science both from Holy Name University in Tagbilaran City.

Before I decided to devote most of my time to teaching and research, I served as Chair of the Department of Philsophy at Silliman University twice, that is, from June 2007 to May 2008 and from June 12 to June 2013. I had also served as Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in Silliman University from June 2012 to May 2016.
