French Website of Life Studies in Belgium

Today, Hiroko Shohoji and her family became a new member of our network! They are living in Belgium. Hiroko et al. have translated some contents of this website into French. Translations of other papers are under way.

Their website:
Réseau International d'Etude de la Vie, Belgique

I really appreciate their translation into French, especially, Brain Dead Person and What is Life Studies.

If you are interested in translation into your native language, or language in your country, please do not hesitate to contact us.

And I have just finished writing the manuscript of a new book. You can see a sample of the printout in the photo. I will write about the contents and the title of the book in the next next entry.
