Through these two years of the project Philological Society, which is being directed by the Head Investigator of this project, made a steady progress, in its number of the participants and in its quality of the articles which were published in the Society's Journal, "Philologica" (vol.1 and vol.2 were published within the period of the project, and vol.3 is under printing at the moment). Our Country is full of classical texts (in Japanese Letters, Chinese Letters, and in Indian Letters), which need philological investigations to be read and understood correctly. One of the purposes of the society's activities is to help these fields of classical studies to understand the importance and the method of European Classical Philology. This part of the project was particularly successful with 5 meetings (two regular and three irregular) with participants from all over the country.
