We had the second philosophy workshop in English at Ryosokuin, Kenninji-temple. The topic was ‘Let’s Talk about Freedom’. The participants, non-native English speakers, tried to listen to others, to question to understand and exchanged opinions. Some seemed frustrated because they couldn’t express clearly what they wanted to say. Some were not sure if they understood what the others said. We felt that such uneasiness and frustrations could make us concentrate more to engage in listening and talking.


From May this ‘Philosophy in English’ project will begin anew and in a new, more accessible form.
