Tetsu NAKAMURA, special head professor of Kyushu University Institute for Advanced Study
Name
Tetsu NAKAMURA
Date of Birth
September 15, 1946
Occupancy
University Professor of Kyushu University Institute for Advanced Study, Representative in Local Site of Peshawar-kai, General Manager of PMS(Peace Japan Medical Service)

I had been thinking that I, a field doctor, have nothing to do with being a university professor. However, there are reasons for accepting the invitation.

In my work, I have been deeply connected to the eastern part of Afghanistan and have seen many calamities including wars, refugees, poverty, droughts and ethnic conflicts. I also saw the powerlessness of the medical and scientific technology that we take pride in. I wondered where our "intellectual works" are heading to. While I was busy taking measures for undergoing severe drought, I had been thinking that the relationship between nature and man must be a major theme for all fields in the future.

I have been realizing that we are entering an era of re-examination of what we have been studying and implementing. Actually, economic frontiers are disappearing and environmental change is threatening us. Technological civilization is coming apart everywhere. Views of the world are hugely diverse and fragmentary, and lack foundation and realism.

In such a situation, I understand that the Institute for Advanced Study is a positive initiative crossing over study fields, taking time and endurance and comprehensibly weaving an "intellectual vector" for the next era. I would be glad if I can contribute any help to my mother university by conveying actual situations on sites from the lowest seat.
