The central theme of the project will be the breakthrough of European and American rationalism as a philosophical approach, or position, and as a specific conceptual and behavioural approach. This meant a decisive break with tradition for Japan and China and their approach to truth and wisdom which, in the context of the Far Eastern intellectual tradition, had developed not just on the level of thought but also psycho-physically. It meant, too, the birth of new philosophical orientations, which have also begun in recent decades to influence the intellectual currents of Europe and America.
