The results of our research program for three years will be summarized as follows.
1.We went on with Japanese translation and careful-reading of Strauss's books and papers which had neither translated nor read carefully in Japan, for example, On Tyranny, Liberalism Ancient and Modern, Persecution and the Art of Writing,‘Three Waves of Modernity', and so on.
2.We advanced our studies in collaboration with many philosophers or scholars of political science in foreign countries, for example, US, Germany, Canada and Australia. And therewith we could hold international conferences on Strauss's political philosophy in the universities in Japan. We invited six university professors from abroad (incidentally the professors we invited were Nathan Tarcov (Prof.at University of Chicago), Heinrich Meier (Prof.at Carl Friedrich von Siemens Stiftung in Germany), Steven Smith (Prof.at Yale University), Michael Zuckert (Prof.at Notre Dame University), Catherine Zuckert (Prof.at Notre Dame University), a
nd Haig Patapan (senior lecturer at Griffith University in Australia), who delivered 12 lectures about Strauss's political philosophy and Straussian thought.
3.And we went on with our studies on political and philosophical problems of the modernity from the Straussian perspective and tried to make clear the ethical and political problems in our age.
4.We also reinterpreted the history of thoughts and the classical political philosophies from the Straussian perspective, i.e.from the standpoint of‘the art of writing'and the‘careful-reading'of the texts.
5.Besides, we developed investigations on problems of the relation between philosophy and tyranny, of the constitutions of modern states and of the social and political regime in postmodern age.
6.Last but not least, we issued a journal entitled"Political Philosophy", which treats, needless to say, not only specifically Strauss's philosophy, but also political philosophy in general. On that journal of which 3 volumes were already issued or are about to issue, we could publish the Japanese version of three Strauss's papers and of six papers already addressed for us by his students (in which Stanley Rosen's and Aryeh Motzkin's paper are contained), and also publish some papers written by Japanese scholars propelling or collaborating to our program.
