By prosecuting this research project from 1994 to 1996, we, the participants in it, obtained the following main results,
Prof. Katayanagi made it clear from the viewpoint of Scriptual hermeneutics that the religio-legal thought of the Old Scriptures war closely interrelated with many national severe experiences of the Israelites of antiquity
Prof. Yokoyama found through the analysis of documentary evidence that the historical development of Platonism from the end of the classical antiquity to the school of Chartres of the twelfth century playd an important role in establishing the scientific concept of law of nature.
Prof. Sakurai showed by a betailed study of the chief book of R.Cumberland entitled De Legibus Naturae Disquisitio Philosophica (1672) that his thought on the laws of nature reflected remarkably the social interests of the English Establishment of his age.
Prof. Munakata made a general survey of various thoughts on the laws of nature from Descartes of the first half of the seventeenth century to Rousseau of the middle of the eighteenth century and explained their intricate mutual relations from the point of history of philosophy.
Prof. Miura made a pioneering study of the historical development of the religious attitudes in the Islamic World toward the scientific laws of nature and showed that modern Islamic responses to Western modrn science was connected with traditional Islamic attitudes.
Prof. Yamazaki made it clear through a detailed analysis of contemporary legal controversies on abortion and Euthanasia that some thoughts based on natural laws are hidden in various life-ethical attitudes.
Prof. Mizutani paid his attention to contemporary computer-ethical problems resulting from the extremely rapid popularization of personal computers and showed through an analysis of some criminal suits that many confusions are brought about by the traditonal legal responses based on the analogy with legally established old cases.
