Current Research Projects and Interests: Together with Prof. Duck-Joo Kwak of Seoul National University and Prof. Ruyu Hung of National Chiayi University, Taipei, Professor Kato is working to create a forum for younger scholars of philosophy of education in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. This forum, which will include other East Asian countries in the future, aims to break the iron wall of nationality and language and tries to bring scholars from these countries into a fruitful discussion with each other as well as with the West.
