The philosophy of Nishitani Keiji 1900-1990 : lectures on religion and modernity

translated, with an interpretive commentary by Jonathan Morris Augustine and Yamamoto Seisaku ; with a preface by Robert E. Carter

This is a translation of a key text for understanding the Kyoto School of Japanese philosophy. Nishitani Keiji has often been regarded as one of the foremost Japanese thinkers of the second half of the twentieth century. For those who are unacquainted with the writings of Nishitani Keiji, it is essential to situate him in the prewar intellectual climate of Kyoto University. His mentor, Nishida Kitaro, set the direction and tone for his thinking about philosophy, religion, and internationalism. Nishitani had many dialogues with Western scholars such as Martin Heidegger, Paul Tillich, and others throughout his life. There are several reasons why this present volume of Nishitani's lectures and essays should be brought to the attention of the Western scholars at this particular time. One reason is that never before in history have Asian and Judeo-Christian religions become so closely associated with one another as they are today. This is evident not just regarding their understanding and friendly relations toward each other, but with regards to shared religious practice such as the forms of meditation and monastic life.
