Glocal Public Philosophy means a practical philosophy that
deals with universal public issues from the particular
public world or place where each individual lives and acts.
Taking historical changes of the nature of public
philosophy, as well as of academic situations from the 19th
century onwards into consideration, the author tries to
develop this idea in view of contemporary philosophies both
in Western countries and in Japan. This book provides not
only new knowledge about modern Japanese public philosophies
but also inspirations to consider the new role of philosophy
for the realization of more peaceful and just societies.

Naoshi Yamawaki is Professor emeritus at the
University of Tokyo and Dean at Seisa University in
Kanagawa, Japan, where he teaches public philosophy for
peace and human rights.
