Interest in Japanese philosophy has grown throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and this first international peer-reviewed journal serves to both develop these traditions of thought and enhance worldwide awareness of them and the resources they offer. The Journal of Japanese Philosophy is devoted to scholarly engagement with a wide range of philosophical texts and discourses, and aims to demonstrate the relevance of Japanese philosophizing for all fields of contemporary thought. All periods and areas of Japanese philosophy, classical to contemporary, as well as interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and comparative studies are highlighted.
