Tokyo Forum For Analytic Philosophy

About Us

What is TFAP? The Tokyo Forum for Analytic Philosophy (in short, 'TFAP') is a forum for research in analytic philosophy broadly conceived---including research in the empirical/formal sciences that is of philosophical interest. We are inviting speakers from Japan and abroad. Meetings are held in English. Anybody who is interested is welcome.

Why is there a TFAP? With analytic philosophy being on the rise in Japan, there is clearly a need for a discussion forum that puts analytic philosophy in Japan more visibly on the map. TFAP aims to meet this desideratum more effectively in both focussing on analytic philosophy exclusively, and in being open to a wider, international community.

Where to find us? The forum is hosted by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Tokyo. We are based at Hongo Campus, in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo. For further information, please see venue.

When do we meet? Usually at a weekly basis during the semester (April-July and October-January). If not otherwise specified, we meet on Fridays, 7-9 pm. For further information, please see program. If you would like to be kept posted about upcoming events, please join our mailing list under register.

How can I take part in TFAP? Just come along. Talks are open to anyone, and participation is free. Also, if you would like to give a talk, please get in touch with us. For further information, please see contact.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meetings!
