I am a JSPS research fellow and a doctoral student at Waseda University (Tokyo), after receiving an MA and BA at the same university. My research focuses on the concept of the object in general in Kant. Drawing on the analytical method (especially those of Neo-Meinongianism), I have studied intensively on Kant's allusion of non-existing objects in his theoretical works. Recently, I am also interested in the epistemology of non-existent objects and the ethics of communication.
