This work focuses on the writings of the postwar Japanese thinker and sinologist Takeuchi Yoshimi (1910-1977). It presents itself less as an intellectual biography than as a series of explorative readings of his work. These readings attempt to trace out the various problematics with which Takeuchi was engaged throughout his career, with particular emphasis given to the notions of modernity, subjectivity and alterity. | 254 pages
