Place: 東京ウィメンズプラザ第一会議室B (渋谷区神宮5-53-67, Jingu , Shibuya)

Theme : 「Us」and「Them」 Social agreement
    ー Let's take a hint from「Moral Tribes」for a better agreement. ー
A lecturer : 百武 ひろ子 
     (CaPA Chief director)
Outline: The book,「Moral Tribes」was written by Joshua D. Greene(a progessor of Psychology
     at Harvard University)and it was published in 2013. In this book, he gave us a practical
    proposal by making full use of the knowledge of Brain science, Psychology and Philosophy
    to clearly grasp moral thinking for a solution of religious and cultural conflict between
    「Us」(a select group of others)and「Them」(everyone else). He regarded moral
    thinking as a combination of Fast(automatic mode with intuitive emotion) and Slow(
    manual mode with a logical thinking). He also explained how important it was to switch to
    manual mode for a 「Us」VS「Them」problem and the solution thereof.
    We try to find the way of Japanese social agreement that is no more than a shadow of
    automatically moral thinking as if by using this book with subtitle「共存の道徳哲学へ(For a
    moral coexistence)」. Green said, our tribal emotions makes us fight. What Japanese style
    of social agreement might be going on ?

「Information disclosure in times of disaster」  

〜The case of accident in the nuclear reactor〜

                by Tetsuya Maruo

"Why consensus building is needed"
Fukushima nuclear power plant was damaged by giant earthquake in 11,March,2011. People who lived near Fukushima nuclear power plant had to get out of their land that is in danger of considerable radioactive contamination. Recently, return of refugees has begun to be studied. However, if refugees could return to their land, uneasiness is still there. Is that decision safety for the future? They have to return to their land, rebuild  the industry with uneasiness.
  No matter how capable people are, nobody knows the future. I think that people has been questioned which risk you chose, risk for the waiting or risk for the changing.
「Social agreement」
  I affirm the importance of social agreement, because official responsibility will be on our own head anyway. In the present,  the disadvantage of making agreement or discussion is larger. Many people say their opinion with using internet. Government policy about the way of agreement has been  revised by degrees.
    The teaching of Confucius(儒教)「the 5 Confucian virtues」
    (benevolence, justice, courtesy, wisdom, and sincerity)
    I think 「sincerity」is more important in the 5th. " I belive you, not demand to be believed by you." A feeling of trust in someone is needed in society. It's  in collusion with the fields of social agreement.
