Youth self-identity, religion, Japan

Takeshi Morisato received a PhD in philosophy from the KU Leuven in 2016 for a dissertation on comparative philosophy of religion in reference to the works of Tanabe Hajime and William Desmond. As part of the GENEsYs project, Takeshi’s research aimed at articulating the philosophical significance of the Shikoku pilgrimage as a kind of “religious experience,” contributing to the constitution of youth self-identity in Japan. He is currently serving as the editor of the European Journal of Japanese Philosophy (EJJP) and the book series from Chisokudō Publications, “Studies in Japanese Philosophy.” His research interests include the Kyoto School, metaxology, metanoetics, and world philosophies.
