Ars Vivendi E-mail Magazine No.119 (April 15, 2014)
Academic year 2014 starts from this April and Prof. Tateiwa, our
center's new director, would like to deliver you the following
Dear all of our readers,
From this April I replace Prof. Nishi as director of the Research
Center for Ars Vivendi. There are things we have achieved and ones
we have not for the past seven years. Although our members' research
and presentation/publication have been very active, there remains
issues both in our international dissemination and international
Our research collaboration with Korean universities/researcher
groups has become active. Moreover, collaboration with a Chinese
NPO has just begun. There is no doubt that Asia is the important
area for our research and dissemination. However, I do not feel that
making preparations for them is easy.
For example, concerning dissemination of the history/current
condition of Japan and its analysis to the English-speaking
society, just translating them into English is not enough. We need
to explain both implication of our thoughts/insistences and
contexts of events, social movements/policies. Although this is not
easy, I think that pinpointing the differences leads to a
presentation with universality. In order to do so we need to enrich
the contents of our Ars Vivendi Journal
and so on.
As for myself I would like to publish the English version of Shiteki
Shoyu Ron (i.e., On Private Property) during this academic year.
Your continuous support to us would be very much appreciated.
Director, Research Center for Ars Vivendi
