The Educational Philosophy of Minoru Murai

Dr. Kanako Ide - Teachers College Visiting Scholar

The purpose of this lecture is to introduce the educational philosophy of the
Japanese contemporary thinker, Minoru Murai. His theories are well known
in Japanese philosophical circles. However, his educational philosophy
has never been translated, likely due to profound cultural differences.
This lecture attempts to explain the fundamental question that his philosophy
asks of education, which is: what constitutes “educational activity”?
He finds the answer to his question in the notion of humanity.
