  1. My all-time favorite, witty Philosophy (Logic) professor. A great inspiration, an idol, who has influenced me a lot with how I view the world to this day.

    May you rest in peace, Dr. Galang. ?

  2. Hello. I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to Dr. Emmanuel Galang’s family. I learned about the sad news through this link: http://beyonddeadlines.com/2016/10/27/university-of-santo-tomas-dr-emmanuel-galang-dies-81/
    He was my all-time favorite professor. He was very witty, animated and would always hilariously reenact when he’s telling an anecdote. Truly a great inspiration, an idol, who has influenced me a lot with how I view the world to this day. I remember I wanted to be a lawyer before college, but one-time he entered our class and ranted about how arrogant this lawyer is. So I thought I don’t want to be a lawyer anymore. Just recently, I decided to take up law again and I remembered Dr. Galang, I thought I could be a lawyer and not be arrogant. So sad to learn about his passing.
    May he rest in peace.

    P.S. I hope my message reach his family. Thank you for sharing him with us, his students. ❤
