Course Overview Many things in the world are currently changing at a very fast pace, and psychotherapy is no exception. Face-to-face interviews, on which psychotherapy has been based, at least for quite some time, will continue to be very hard to come by. And even after this change has subsided, psychotherapy is unlikely to return to exactly the same form as before. So what will be lost or not lost in psychotherapy in the future, and what will be born anew? In this lecture, I will discuss the present situation from a bird's-eye view, starting from the past, which is a little far from the changing present. Taking a bird's-eye view of a current event is a very difficult skill. However, it is one of the basic behaviors of a psychotherapist to take a bird's-eye view of the situation in which one is immersed. In this class, we will tackle the task of looking at the world today from the expert’s perspective.

E科目 (English, English)
Course Overview Buddhism includes communities, practices, philosophies, and technologies spanning roughly twenty-five hundred years and covering diverse regions across Asia and more recently, the West. Buddhists themselves often describe their practice as a path. In a similar way, we will take a journey through many of the practices, communities, and movements that developed over the course of its history. Our investigations will closely consult firsthand sources, authored by Buddhists, themselves. By reading and analyzing primary texts, you will encounter new types of cultural practices and ways of thinking.
The course is divided thematically into three sections: Buddhist foundations, Buddhist divisions and philosophies, and Buddhist practices.

GOALS FOR THIS COURSE
1) Learn key Buddhist terminology, concepts, and practices. Consider both continuities among traditions as well as variations and issues of historical and regional context.
2) Develop analytical skills that allow you to critically read primary sources within Buddhist traditions.
3) Engage in open conversation, especially in an English-language setting. In addition, you will gain practice in asking questions, making comments, and writing about the ideas, practices, and vested interests embedded in the sources we study.
4) Step into the unfamiliar by encountering beliefs, practices and ways of understanding the world outside of your own.
