A new effort to build a platform for philosophers’ collaborative studies

Wittgenstein who was born in Vienna and known as an Austrian-philosopher has been widely studied in Europe and Asia. Although the significance of the collaborative studies by various countries’ philosophers is recognized, it is challenging to develop a connection with philosophers whose studies have been traditionally based on individual works. In particular, activities by researchers of Western philosophy in Asia have been relatively unknown. Therefore, this crowdfunding project is launched to create opportunities for exchange and collaboration among philosophers by holding an international workshop in Tokyo. New collaborations can be promoted by an open call for participants rather than the Japanese conventional style. The future task is to hold the workshop regularly aiming to establish a platform where philosophers stay connected.
