|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This research connects together and develops international research, particularly British and Japanese, on the continuing influence and importance of the Romantic philosophy of British poet and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and his ideas on imagination, education, and contemplation.
Researchers collaborated from Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Tokyo, Kyoto, and other universities around the world, with a major conference at Kyoto Notre Dame University, and a second conference at Cambridge University. The research was further developed and, as well as resulting in several publications in academic journals, a book titled Coleridge and Contemplation was published by Oxford University Press.
This work connects thinkers around the world, and brings together thoughts on imagination and contemplation, linking past, present, and future so that we can better understand the importance of contemplation for the future of science, education, social well-being, political progress, and the arts.
