Individuum, Society, Humankind: The Triadic Logic of Species According to Hajime Tanabe

Front Cover
BRILL, 2001 - Philosophy - 268 pages
In this collection on the Kyoto School of Philosophy, the author offers the reader Tanabe's religious philosophy, but also, and for the first time, his philosophy of nature and ontology. It is not only on individuum, society, and humankind, but also on the logical structure of Tanabe's thinking, and aspects such as nature, beauty, matter, contemplation, practice, politics, religion, science, history, eternity, etcetera. A highly original work, the more as the reader becomes acquainted with Ozaki's own creative synthetic view of the main problems of Christian-Buddhist theological, resp. philosophical encounter.
