How to Live in a Post-religious Age

It's raining and it's cold. I don't like rain.

Next weekend, I am going to join the 8th International Tsukuba Round Table conference on bioethics. Researchers from various Asian countires and Europe will get together and have a 4 day conference. Tsukuba is located north of Tokyo, so I believe it is colder than here.
This is the list of the abstracts of the conference. I am planning to talk about the possibility of comparative research on the history of bioethics among various countries. I have just sent them an abstract. Life studies is different from bioethics, but I think there are many people who are frustrated with current bioethics.

I happened to visit
Chinese Bioethics Initiative. This website is interesting. We have to pay special attention to their activities. What kind of original thinkers do they have? See their Research project on Cultural Issues in Bioethics.

A couple of days ago, I received an email asking me if I have a translation of my book,
How to Live in a Post-religious Age (1996). I have not translated it yet, but I will in the near future. I believe many people who have visited this site will find this book interesting.

The photo was taken in a well-known coffee shop, Starbucks Osaka, originally from Seattle, USA. I drank hot milk.
