Colloque international de philosophie « Seconde conférence annuelle du réseau européen de philosophie japonaise »

[Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) , Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Université de Liège (ULG)] 

The 2nd Annual Conference for the European Network of Japanese Philosophy (ENOJP)

 Celebrating the 150 Years of Friendship between Belgium and Japan

The purpose of this conference is two-fold: it aims to achieve a scholarly advancement of the field of Japanese philosophy in European languages (as the second annual conference of the ENOJP) and also, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between Japan and Belgium, it will accommodate a number of presentations that mark scholarly exchanges between European and Japanese scholars in the general field of philosophy.

To achieve this end, we will organize panels that range from various topics in the intellectual history of Japan to the general topics of philosophy that are actively pursued both in the islands of Japan, Belgium and other European countries. These communications of the finest scholars both from Japan, Belgium and Europe will not only contribute to the general awareness and growth of the field of Japanese philosophy in Belgium and the rest of Europe, but also will establish stronger networks of philosophical minds between Japanese and European scholars in Brussels. We believe that this conference in the heart of Europe will serve as a great occasion for Japanese, Belgian and European scholars to celebrate the 150 Years of the friendship between Belgium and Japan.

The Conference will be held at Université libre de Bruxelles
