An inquiry into the good by Kitarō Nishida( Book )

"An Inquiry into the Good, the earliest work of Kitarō Nishida, established its author as the foremost Japanese philosopher of the twentieth century. The book represents the foundation of Nishida's philosophy, which reflects both his deep study of Zen Buddhism and his thorough analysis of Western philosophy. In this important new translation, two scholars -- one Japanes and one American -- have worked together to present a lucid and accurate rendition of this basic work. They have also included an enlightening introduction and ample notes to aid the Western reader. Nishida sets forth the notion of "pure experience"--The concept that pure, or direct, experience precedes the separation of subject and object and is true reality. He next considers reality, investigating its relation to thinking, volition, and intuition. The Good, which Nishida considered to be the realization of our internal demands or ideals, is analyzed in the light of the nature of reality and pure experience. In conclusion, Nishida suggests a theory of God as the unifier of the universe and the universe as an expression of God. Throughout he touches upon the work of Western philosophers such as Kant, Hegel, Fichte, William James, and John Dewey in order to explicate his ideas"--Front flap

Art and morality by Kitarō Nishida( Book )

15 editions published between 1923 and 1995 in English and Japanese and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The scholarly world has devoted much attention to the unique political and economic "modernization" process that has been taking place in Japan during the past century. Unfortunately, corresponding contributions and developments in humanistic spheres have been all but overlooked despite the presence of many distinguished Japanese names in literature, philosopht, and the arts. Nishida Kitaro (1870-1945) was one luminary who did achieve recognition in his lifetime. He arose from the complex intellectual milieu of the creative Meiji and Taisho periods to a position of wide acclaim as the foremost academic philosopher of modern Japan. The legacy of his thought, both in and out of the Kyoto School he founded, continues to be felt today. Moreover, his reputation as an "international" thinker based on his initiation of an original East-West philosophical dialogue continues to grow steadily. Today Nishida's collected works fill nineteen volumes. Art and Morality (1923) is the pivotal volume in his long and creative career. It stands as the key work between the inception and the exploration and expansion of his unique ideas -- those he termed "the immediacy of experience" or "pure experience." Nishida strove throughout his lifetime to articulate these thoughts in the language of Western philosophy. In Art and Morality he treats aesthetic and moral expression as primary examples of his philosophy"--Front flap

De ce qui agit à ce qui voit by Kitarō Nishida( )

"Le livre de Nishida Kitarō (1870-1945), quatrième volume de l'édition de 1965 des œuvres complètes, est offert pour la première fois ici en traduction intégrale. Composé de neuf essais rédigés entre 1923 et 1927, cet ouvrage marque la transition vers la philosophie originale caractérisant Nishida. Ce tournant est directement exprimé dans le titre "De ce qui agit à ce qui voit". Partant d'une position qui considère la réalité fondamentale ou réalité véritable en tant que point d'unité des choses qui agissent, l'auteur passe à " ce qui voit ", c'est-à-dire à une position qui met en scène le "plan d'englobement" de la réalité, soit une philosophie de la relation organisant en une vaste fresque tous les plans du réel, de même que les rapports mutuels établis entre tous leurs éléments constituants." extrait du site de l'éditeur
