Toward Peaceful and Just Societies in the Age of Globalization

By Naoshi Yamawaki

'Glocal Public Philosophy' means a practical philosophy that deals with universal public issues from the particular public world or place where each individual lives and acts. Taking historical changes of the nature of public philosophy, as well as of academic situations from the 19th century onwards into consideration, the author tries to develop this idea in view of contemporary philosophies both in Western countries and in Japan. This book provides, not only new knowledge about modern Japanese public philosophies, but also inspiration for a new role of philosophy for the realization of a more peaceful and just societies.
