About the Author

Robert Carter is Professor of Philosophy at Trent University. Yamamoto Seisaku teaches at the Kansai University of Foreign Studies, Osaka, Japan.


"Robert Carter and Yamamoto Seisaku have produced a wonderfully clear and lucid translation of Watsuji Tetsuro's masterpiece, Rinrigaku. Long known by comparative philosophers as a centerpiece of modern Japanese philosophical tradition, Rinrigaku has been made accessible now to Western students and scholars. For anyone who is a serious student of Heidegger, this work is a must read!" - David Edward Shaner, Furman University "Here we have a major treatise by a sophisticated thinker who self-consciously wished to provide a distinctly "Asian" alternative to Western ethical systems-systems he and others saw as conceptually flawed and culturally ethnocentric. Long-suppressed questions about the assumed universalizability of some of the West's most privileged moral modes are posed in and through this work. The study both of comparative ethics and of comparative societies will necessarily be much enriched and enlivened by it." - From the Foreword by William R. LaFleur
