Clinical Philosophy

臨床哲学授業風景 The Clinical Philosophy program grew out of the Ethics in Philosophy course. The program requires students to engage in close readings and criticism of Western and Japanese ethical thought, moral theory, contemporary social philosophy, and cultural theory, as well as repositioning the questions and frameworks expressed in these texts within specific contexts. Students are also expected to unearth latent issues from different areas of society through discussion and reformulate these issues as questions and problems.

The program strongly emphasizes joint study. Instead of simply satisfying one’s intellectual curiosity in solitude, researchers are encouraged to engage with the community and talk with people associated with their area of interest—be it on the subject of care, medical treatment, education, gender or sexuality—to identify problems and then create and implement research plans.
