Kyoto Symposium - Polyphonic Circular Co-Emergence

How we human beings have to take steps toward the future? Challenging to such transdisciplinary problems, we need the integration of Eastern philosophy and Western Science, and even polyphonic transformation of our bodies and minds. Through the dialog between experience and science, theory and practice of transformation concerning ourselves, and the dialog between arts and religions, we are discussing the creative problem solving for these issues to the future.
