Founder's Words: Our
new age of global dialogue calls for creating a philosophical arena
where a variety of different ideas and proposals can meet each other
on the basis of a free, persuasive principle of civilization. This
principle of civilization has three basic categories in reference
to the emerging new world of today which is in the process of becoming
creatively transformed and synthecized day after day: namely, Peace,
Dialogue, and Earth.
I, henceforth, name our
arena PDE Inter-University On-line Philosophical Archives. I heartily
welcome any valuable contribution to the Archives-in the form of
a philosophical paper on the theme of Peace and Dialogue on Earth.
The general theme of
The X. IPO is a ramification of this theme. Let me put it here again:
Toward a Just and Dialogical Human Community: An Exploration of
Sustainability, Civility, and Mutual Learning.
On-line Philosophical Archives is located in Dr. Tokiyuki Nobuhara's
Office at Keiwa College; and is an academic arena for PDE Inter-University
Center. As such, it aspires to serve humanity and the advancement
of its wisdom, philosophy, in cooperation with the IPO and other
philosophical and educational movements in the present-day world.
