The publisher says that several book reviews on Painless Civilization: A Philosophical Critique of Desire are scheduled to be published in newspapers. I look forward to reading them.
By the way, I am writing a paper for the forthcoming conference, Cross-Cultural Issues in Bioethics: The Example of Human Cloning, Bochum, Dec. 4-6, 2003 Ruhr-Universitat, Germany. I am going to present a paper on the debate on human cloning in Japan, and its legal regulation. The deadline for the paper has already passed, but I have not finished it.... I want to say something about "philosophy of life" in addition to legal issues.
