Chapter Summary

This chapter charts Miki Kiyoshi's continuing progress through the European philosophical and literary canons. As with Miki's undergraduate years, there is relatively more evidence available for this period than for his later years. Of particular interest are Miki's letters to Tanabe Hajime, Ishihara Ken and his friend Hani (Mori) Gorō giving information about conditions in Germany and France and details about his responses to people and ideas. Of his teachers during this period, the two most important influences on Miki's intellectual development were undoubtedly Herrigel and, to some extent, Rickert in Heidelberg, and Heidegger in Marburg. Other tutors, such as Löwith and Gadamer were Miki's age or younger, but were still important in helping Miki to develop his techniques of textual interpretation. Miki's discovery of Blaise Pascal changed his understanding of the 'philosophy of life' in ways that perhaps no other thinker had.

Keywords: Hani (Mori) Goro; Hans Georg Gadamer; Ishihara Ken; Martin Heidegger; Miki Kiyoshi; Tanabe Hajime
