Sample text

This is not only the source of the expansionist character of Europe, but also the root of the formation of slavery, in the services of the liberation of a few from nature, at the expense of many, by reducing them to the raw existence of livestock. This is the soil from which the flowers of the European civilizations blossom. As an elaboration of his position propounded in his treatment of Ethics, Watsuji’s Fudo cannot be said to be a successful work. First, he failed to provide a comprehensive theoretical model to deal with the relation between the individual and society, and the relation between the subjectivity of humans and the objectivity of nature.

As his most forceful response, he compiled the book Asianism and published it in 1963 with the long introduction ‘The Prospect of Asianism’. Takeuchi is almost the only one in Japan’s intellectual history to pursue the question of Asianism, and to abstract principles from it. Although the limitation of his thinking is very obvious, through him we can search relatively deeper into the vein of Japan’s Asianism. ‘The Prospect of Asianism’ is a reading guide for the book, Asianism (Takeuchi 1963). The latter was published by Chikuma Shobo, as Volume 9 of the Collected Works of Modern Japanese Thinking (Gendai Nihon shiso taikei).

For the parts Mood and Logic, Takeuchi includes articles from Miyazaki Toten, Uchida Ryohei, Okawa Shumei and others – in total, the work of seven people. These people either had had direct involvement in the internal affairs of other Asian countries or even had taken part in the aggression. Takeuchi intends to abstract from the writings of these active agents the shape of the mood of Asianism and the line of development of the logic. Takeuchi observes that, if for these people Asianism and expansion since Meiji are almost indistinguishable, it makes no sense to rigidly define the two as distinct from each other.
