Philos for Living Organisms (10th anniversary commemorative event)

In commemoration of our 10th anniversary, we held an event to introduce “philos” as an axis within which to frame the combined research/expressive nature of work at the JT Biohistory Research Hall.
Philos, a sustained sense of affinity and affection for living creatures, is fundamental to the study of biohistory. Unlike a machine, a living creature is far more than a collection of parts. It lives, it breaths, it rejoices, it suffers. It tells us what it means to be alive (Keiko Nakamura, Tokindo S. Okada).

Date: November 29, 2003 (Saturday)
Place: JT ART HALL Affinis (Toranomon, Tokyo)
