Nishida Kitarō, Intuition and Reflection in Self-Consciousness

Intuition and Reflection in Self-Consciousness is a translation of the second volume of the Collected Works of Nishida Kitarō, Japan’s foremost twentieth-century philosopher, this book provides a rare glimpse into the struggle of the Japanese mind to rethink the concerns of Western philosophy in terms of the Eastern intellectual heritage. The translation evokes the movement and flavor of the notoriously opaque original as well as clarifying its obscurities and eliminating much of the repetition. Moreover, this is the first translation of Nishida’s works, in Japanese or English, to appear with complete bibliographical annotation. Everyone interested in the interaction of Eastern and Western thought-forms now has a document elucidating many of the cultural, psychological, and intellectual dynamics that have shaped Japanese intellectual life in one of its most fascinating and ambitious manifestations.

Hans Waldenfels, Absolute Nothingness: Foundations for a Buddhist-Christian Dialogue

A major breakthrough in Buddhist-Christian dialogue, Absolute Nothingness is a comparative study that attempts to relate the Kyoto School of Buddhist philosophy to the Christian tradition. Among the major questions treated in this book is that of spiritual emptiness as it is experienced in the traditions of East and West. The author brings to his book the skills of a theologian and the sensitivities of one who has studied Buddhism in Japan.
