La nostra Accademica prof.ssa Etsuko Akiba (Facoltà di Economia, Università di Toyama - Giappone), ha tradotto e curato la versione giapponese del libro “Global Bioethics. An Introduction”, scritto dal prof. Hen ten Have, che è pure un nostro Accademico. “At the end of this book – scrive la prof.ssa Akiba al nostro Presidente Mons. Vincenzo Paglia – I have added some comments of my own, presenting the mission of the PAV to promote Global Bioethics, which is a companion of personalist bioethics, and mentioning deep concern expressed by Prof. Sadako Ogatsa (UN High Commissioner for Refugees) in 2013 for the post-World War II Japanese who do not train themselves to look at the world from an international perspective and are not good at logical thinking, which is caused by the loss of their inner core”. Nella lettera inoltre la prof.ssa Akiba sottolinea alcune difficoltà incontrate e risolte, nella resa in giapponese di alcuni concetti propri della mentalità occidentale.
