Chapter Summary

Miki Kiyoshi's early "Kyoto period", primarily his years at Kyoto Imperial University as an undergraduate from 1917 until 1920, was characterised psychologically by the increasing development of an idealised image of the contemplative life personified by Nishida. This idealized personification, sometimes referred to as an 'imago' by personality psychologists, shaped Miki's personal and intellectual development through his undergraduate years and into his later Kyoto period when he studied with Nishida prior to leaving for Europe in May 1922. This chapter outlines the historical background to Miki's personal and intellectual development during his undergraduate years. The chapter considers the enormous contribution of Nishida to the field of Japanese philosophy.
