Since I was a graduate student, sociality has been the central theme of my research. My Ph. D. (Tokyo University in 1999) dissertation was on the works of Alfred Schutz, who is known as the initiator of Phenomenological Sociology that is projected to be a theoretical exploration of the sociality as the fundamental dimension of social reality. My doctoral thesis succeeds and completes the unfinished theoretical project of Schutz to analyze the constitution of the social world from the basic dimension of human sociality and furrows the path to further exploration of human plurality for its innate political/ethical elements.
I have been engaged in international and interdisciplinary research/education activities in Korea, Japan (as a Japanese Government Scholarship Student and a Fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) and U.S. (as a Fulbright Scholar).
Currently, I am expanding the horizon of my work to the areas of culture and globalization to explore socio-cultural resources of sociality to meet the political/ethical challenges of the world in the making.
