Nishida Among the Idealists
Department or Administrative Unit
Philosophy and Religious Studies
Nishida Kitarō's (1911) Zen no kenkyū (An inquiry into the good) was deeply informed by the German Idealist tradition. Like Fichte and Schelling, Nishida attempts to explain how we can become conscious of the ultimate unity of subject and object. His appeal to pure experience, validated through artistic creation and moral practice, is in some ways an improvement on Fichte's appeal to practical faith and Schelling's appeal to revelation.
