Enrico Fongaro (Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture), Jacynthe Tremblay and Felipe Ferrari (Yokkaichi University) are pleased to invite all to the first meeting of the new Permanent Seminar on the Philosophy of Kitarō Nishida.
The inaugural meeting will be held in hybrid form at the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture on April 21, 2023, from 15h00 to 18h00.
At that time, the general goals of this Permanent Seminar will be explained, and the dates of future meetings will be decided. In addition, Enrico Fongaro will give an initial talk on An Inquiry into the Good, which will be the first Nishidian text to be employed in the Seminar. The title of the talk will be “Politics of Translation.”
The basic structure of the Seminar will be as follows: we will tentatively meet once a month, indicatively around the third Friday of the month. The meetings will always be hybrid and there will be no official language adopted by the Seminar. Any intervention in any language will be welcome and it will be decided from time to time in a flexible way how to make the interventions usable for the participants. The meetings will last a maximum of three hours, and after the intervention of one or more speakers, who will be allocated a limited amount of time, the rest of the Seminar will be used for questions, comments and discussion. The Seminar is not designed only for specialists in Nishidian philosophy, but on the contrary, efforts will be made to keep it open to stimuli and contributions from the most diverse currents of thought.
You are all warmly invited to participate!
