Tetsuri Kato

KATO Tetsuri is a professor at the Faculty of Law, Nagoya University. He received his Ph. D. at Kyoto University in 2010, with a thesis on the political philosophy of Hans-Georg Gadamer. His current research interest lies in the methodological consideration of political thought, especially in the field of comparative political theory, which he pursues through an intercultural dialogue between Western philosophical trends trying to overcome the limits of European philosophy, and the traditions of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Shintoism in East Asia and Japan. He is now seeking to understand political thought as a “way” of life that is grounded on the unity of heaven and earth and integrates mind and body through practice.
