Philosophy Colloquium by Yujin Itabashi, PhD
Grounded on Nothing: Radical Criticism in Nishida’s Philosophy
Presented by Yujin Itabashi, PhD, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Rissho University, Japan.
Nishida in transition – this talk focuses on Nishida’s middle-period philosophy as is grows out of his early theory of pure experience. The famous concept of “place” (basho) emerges, not only out of Nishida’s dialogue with non-Western philosophy including Buddhism, but through a radical criticism of presumptions commonly made in theories of experience. We shall trace out this development while highlighting the philosophical significance of the concept of “place.”
