Description

Nishida Kitaro (1870-1945) is considered Japan's first and greatest modern philosopher. As founder of the Kyoto School, he began a rigorous philosophical engagement and dialogue with Western philosophical traditions, especially the work of G. W. F. Hegel. John W. M. Krummel explores the Buddhist roots of Nishida's thought and places him in connection with Hegel and other philosophers of the Continental tradition. Krummel develops notions of self-awareness, will, being, place, the environment, religion, and politics in Nishida's thought and shows how his ethics of humility may best serve us in our complex world.show more

Review quote

"One of a handful of genuinely significant studies of Nishida in the English language. It has perhaps the most thorough overview of the trajectory of the historical in Nishida's thinking while providing interesting and original philosophical engagements." -Jason M. Wirth, coeditor of Japanese and Continental Philosophy: Conversations with the Kyoto School "John W. M. Krummel's analysis of Nishida's dialectic takes readers to the core of Nishida's epistemology and metaphyics. It is a central study." -Robert E. Carter, Trent University "[T]he current volume constitutes an enormous contribution to Nishida scholarship, comparative philosophy, and postmodern visions of and for a global world. It provides inspiring scholarship on Nishida and, at the same time, invites subsequent creative reflections. In short, it constitutes philosophical reflection at its best." -Reading Religion "[This] volume constitutes an enormous contribution to Nishida scholarship, comparative philosophy, and postmodern visions of and for a global world. It provides inspiring scholarship on Nishida and, at the same time, invites subsequent creative reflections. In short, it constitutes philosophical reflection at its best." -Journal of Japanese Studies "The current volume constitutes an enormous contribution to Nishida scholarship, comparative philosophy, and postmodern visions of and for a global world. It provides inspiring scholarship on Nishida and, at the same time, invites subsequent creative reflections. In short, it constitutes philosophical reflection at its best." -Japanese Journal of Religious Studiesshow more
