The chief object of this research consists in thinking how to introduce the clinical moment into the philosophical ethics. In the first year, we treated the project of applied ethics as a version of the clinical development of contemporary ethical researches, and showed that the concept 'application' is somewhat skeptical in suggesting that ethics can be realized as a general theory outside the clinical scenes.
In the seconde year, we confirmed that the clinicity of ethics can have its deepest meaning in the listening, which sees at a glance very passive. But at the same time, the problem remains unsolved, how the clinicity of ethics can rehabilitate itself.
During these two years we could exchange deeply the opinions about the clinicity of ethics with a lot of reseachers outside of philosophical fields, such as nursing, teaching, counseling. And after these concentrated discussion we published an Newsletter "Clinical Philospphy".
