Contribute to the revitalization of Utsunomiya through philosophical dialogue

At the Utsunomiya Campus, we hold a philosophy cafe where adults and children "think" about various things and "tell them in words", mainly talking about child-rearing and family. By providing opportunities for dialogue on things that you would not normally think about, you will be able to come into contact with ideas from various perspectives and discover new discoveries and possibilities. We are working on regular holdings with the aim of actively interacting with local residents, educating children, and creating a city that is friendly to child-rearing.

Philosophy Cafe activities


This activity is part of efforts for Community Engagement and the connection between the high school and university, and aims to ``think'' about various things using the method of philosophical dialogue, and ``convey these ideas in words'' to the other person.The purpose of this activity is to decide on a theme and hold a dialogue. We are setting aside time. Philosophical dialogue was developed as a school education program and is now a method used around the world.
Philosophy Cafes are planned and operated all over Japan, but they are not held continuously in Tochigi Prefecture. With the aim of educating children and revitalizing Utsunomiya, we are continuously holding the prefecture's first philosophy cafe.

It is a "philosophy open debate" project for citizens that originated in Paris, France in the 1990s, and since a cafe that anyone can freely enter and exit was selected as the venue, it has come to be called the café philosophique. rice field. It had the function and character as a place where citizens could freely exchange opinions on philosophical topics without being bound by authority for citizens, but it is now the school education program "For Children" that was born in the United States. It is being developed in Japan in a gentle connection with "Philosophy for Children".
