I have a BA from Duke, an MA from Yale, and a PhD in philosophy from Washington University (St. Louis). I’m about to retire from Bukkyo University in Kyoto, having taught there for 34 years. I plan to do a great deal of writing in the coming decade, none of it for scholars: philosophy (my own arguments and conclusions - I’m no scholar of this or that philosopher), autobiography (my very early childhood, my life in Japan), science fiction (with lots of humor and some philosophy), and so on. I’ve finished two books so far: “The Basic Humor Process,” Mouton de Gruyter, Berlin 1998, and “The Joy of Life / The Sting of Death,” Grammaticus Press 2013 (self-published). For ten years I served as English editor for an English-language scientific journal published in Japan, and I’ll be looking for editing work in the near future. Help is always welcome, and I’ll give what help I can!
Occupation:Translation and publishing

I have spent two-thirds of my professional career in Japan, where I worked as a foreign attorney in the Tokyo and Osaka offices of Ohebashi LPC & Partners, one of Japan’s premiere law firms for more than 10 years. On the U.S. side, I also worked in the New York offices of two top U.S. firms—Weil Gotshal & Manges and Dewey Leboeuf.
I have also worked in-house with Panasonic Electric Works as their first-ever foreign lawyer, and more recently, at Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma. Through these experiences, I have gained a familiarity with Japanese business practices, corporate communication and decision-making. Lucinda understands that effective oral and written communication is the cornerstone for globalization and competitiveness of Japanese companies.
