My new book, Painless Civilization: A Philosophical Critique of Desire was finally published on Oct.5. Now we can see them at large bookstores in big cities. I gave a public lecture on painless civilization at Ikebukuro, Tokyo, on Oct.5, about 100 people came and we had an exciting discussion on the topics I presented. The publisher says the book sells well. I plan to report reactions from readers here.
The other day, a college student in the USA sent an email to me saying that she could help edit the translation of Painless Civilization. It is exciting to know that there is someone outside Japan who has an interest in my new book!
And I suddenly realized that messages from visitors who used our feedback form may have been lost, particularly during recent several months, in a great deal of spam accumulated in my mailbox.... If you have not received a reply after sending a message to me, would you send it again?
