The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Contemporary Japanese Philosophy examines the current vibrant trends in Japanese philosophical thinking. Situating Japanese philosophy within the larger context of global intercultural philosophical discourse and pointing to new topics of research, this Handbook covers philosophy of science, philosophy of peace, philosophy of social justice and healing. Introducing not only new readings of well-known Japanese philosophers, but also work by contemporary Japanese philosophers who are relatively unknown outside Japan, it makes a unique contribution by offering an account of Japanese philosophy from within and going beyond an objective description of it in its various facets. Also featured is the work of a younger generation of scholars and thinkers, who bring in fresh perspectives that will push the field into the future. These critical essays, by leading philosophers and rising scholars, to the past and the present of Japanese philosophy demonstrate ways of doing engaged philosophy in the present globalized age. With suggestions for further reading, a glossary, a timeline and annotated bibliography, The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Contemporary Japanese Philosophy is an ideal research guide to understanding the origin, transformation, and reception of Japanese philosophy in the 21st century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This handbook fills a void in the literature in English on contemporary philosophy in Japan, with essays on topics ranging from aesthetics to politics, phenomenology to philosophy of science, and feminism to nuclear power. Its considerable strengths are enhanced by the diversity of the contributors, some of whom are senior scholars in the field and others up-and-coming researchers, some hailing from Japan and others from various countries in the West. A first-rate introduction to this exciting new area of research. -- GRAHAM PARKES, Professorial Research Fellow, University of Vienna, Austria
Contemporary Japanese Philosophy is a most welcome addition to the ever-growing western literature on Japanese thought, incorporating the work of key scholars in the field. It should appeal not only to readers interested in Japan but also to those seeking fresh perspectives on many key issues of our time such as the philosophy of disaster, feminism, the body, science, and artistic creativity -- THOMAS P. KASULIS, Professor Emeritus, University Distinguished Scholar, The Ohio State University, USA
The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Contemporary Japanese Philosophy makes an especially valuable contribution in underscoring, through its essays hailing from the various corners of the globe, the international intellectual and practical phenomenon that the field of Japanese philosophy has become. The editor and contributors deserve the thanks of their colleagues in this exciting, burgeoning field as well as those of parties globally fascinated by these developments. * Notre Dame Philosophical Review *
