Nishitani Keiji: Nihilism, Buddhism, Anontology

In Gereon Kopf (ed.), The Dao Companion to Japanese Buddhist Philosophy. New York, NY, USA: Springer. pp. 649-79 (2019)


In the paper/chapter, I examine Nishitani's appropriation of Buddhist thought as a response to nihilism and I regard his stance as an 'anontology' (neither ontology nor meontology), a neologism I've applied in my discussions of Nishida in other works as well.
