"Japanese and Continental Philosophy is a breathtaking venture into the lively world that opens between the Kyoto School and Western philosophy of a continental cast. If anyone harbors any doubts as to the value of bringing together these traditions, these doubts will be utterly dissipated upon reading this scintillating text. This is a book to savor, as timely in its appearance as it is replete with wisdom in its offering." oEdward S. Casey, SUNY Stony Brook "After a hundred and fifty years of studying western thought and rethinking it from their own spiritual and intellectual resources, Japanese philosophers have arrived at a watershed in securing their rightful place within a philosophical forum more open and comprehensive than ever before. The encounter of Western scholars with the Kyoto school has played a pivotal role in this turn of events. What is more, as the essays brought together in this book attest, the conversations have grown beyond one of translation, synopsis, and critical commentary for foreign consumption to include important contributions to that tradition itself." oJames W. Heisig, Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture
