UTCP Graduate Conference 2012

Practicing Japanese Philosophy: Mind and Activity

February 18-19, 2012
The University of Tokyo (Komaba Campus), Tokyo, Japan
Organized by the University of Tokyo Center for Philosophy (UTCP)

Keynote Speaker: Graham Parkes (University College Cork)

This conference will explore the experiential possibility of thinking in Japanese philosophy and other related disciplines. Writing, speaking, singing, meditating and even walking, nourish and enhance our ways of feeling and thinking. Human thinking, however pure and abstract, does not occur without the aid of sensuous activity. Even the dry and prudent analysis of historical text requires the sharp adjustment of perception. The aim of this conference is to find ways to connect theory with practice that opens to skillful, expedite, philosophical activity. If we become aware of such reciprocity of mind and activity, the work of philosophy creates an ongoing changes of perspective consisting of different things and their relations. The UTCP is pleased to invite graduate students and postgraduates to submit papers for their two-day conference at the University of Tokyo (Komaba Campus) on February 18-19, 2012.

Papers that address the following or related themes are welcome:
Practical and Material Aspect of Japanese Philosophy
Japanese Aesthetics and Arts
Reconsidering the Kyoto School
Connection between Eastern and Western Philosophy
