“Tokyo Forum 2022” will focus on “Dialogue between Philosophy and Science: In a World Facing War, Pandemic, and Climate Change”.

In the face of war, a pandemic, and climate change, we cannot repeat the history of the last century, in which our ancestors headed down the road to division, global conflict, and environmental destruction. Philosophy of the 21st century must contribute to the construction of a new universality based on locality and diversity. Science in the 21st century also needs to dispense with its overarching aura of supremacy and lack of self-criticism.

How can we live more fully and how do we find a new common understanding about what our society should be? Tokyo Forum 2022 will tackle these questions through a series of in-depth dialogues between philosophy and science.
