This section provides an overview of twentieth-century philosophy in Japan. The fall from grace of the Kyoto School after the death of Nishida Kitarō and allegations of wartime complicity in its ranks marked a turning point in the diversification of Japanese philosophy. On the one hand, there was a return to the early Greek and Socratic ideals. Others sought to fill the gap by turning to logical positivism and linguistic analysis. Popularist philosophies like the post-structuralism of Nakamura Yūjurō and the cosmopolitanism of Imamichi Tomonobu are typical of those who sought to bring the results of academic philosophy from around the world to a wider audience. This section presents translations of a variety of texts by Japanese philosophers associated with twentieth-century philosophy, including Hatano Seiichi, Tosaka Jun, Ichikawa Hakugen, Imanishi Kinji, Takizawa Katsumi, Izutsu Toshihiko, Maruyama Masao, Yuasa Yasuo, Kimura Bin, Hiromatsu Wataru, Sakabe Megumi, and Fujita Masakatsu.

Keywords:   twentieth-century philosophy, Japanese philosophy, logical positivism, linguistic analysis, post-structuralism, cosmopolitanism, Japanese philosophers, Hatano Seiichi, Sakabe Megumi, Fujita Masakatsu
