Knowledge Circulating Across Asia [JP]

Lecture Description

The question that establishes morality appeared as an urgent issue in Europe after the religious war.

How can we establish morality without appealing to transcenders? This question has also been spread in Asia. Religion or morality, or both of them? Modern Asia was incorporated into such problem system.

However, in recent years, some kind of rework has occurred, for example the old norms such as courtesy has been reevaluated. In this lecture, Prof.Nakajima outlines how the knowledge concerning the norms circulates across Asia.
