Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Keiji Nishitani (February 27, 1900 - November 24, 1990) was a Japanese philosopher of the Kyoto School and a disciple of Kitaro Nishida. In 1924 Nishitani put forward his dissertation Das Ideale und das Reale bei Schelling und Bergson and studied under Martin Heidegger in Freiburg during 1937-9. He became the principal chair of religion at Kyoto University around 1943, and, according to James Heisig, after his being banned of holding any public position by the United States Occupation authorities in July 1946, Nishitani refrained from drawing "practical social conscience into philosophical and religious ideas, preferring to think about the insight of the individual rather than the reform of the social order."
