3rd meeting of Japanese Philosophy Network

Tuesday, January 23rd 2024
EAA Seminar Room (11), 1st floor, Bldg. 101, Komaba Campus, The University of Tokyo

This is the 3rd meeting of Japanese Philosophy Network.

Speaker: Hanako Takayama (EAA, UTokyo)

Title: The Concept of the Immemorial in Megumi Sakabe

Megumi Sakabe (1936-2009), a Japanese philosopher who began his career as a Kant scholar, is best known for The Phenomenology of Mask (1976), Tetsuro Watsuji (1986), and The Poetics of Persona (1989). In a later work, Katari: The Grammar of Story (1990), he discussed the narrative phase of katari by distinguishing it from Japanese hanashi or uta. My main argument will be how he evolved the concept of the person/persona when he took into account the problematics of poetic language. For this, I would like to focus on his idea of the immemorial, which is explained as the act of touching the extraordinary time and space of the myths realized by katari.

Date: Tuesday, January 23rd, 2024
Time: 17:00-18:30 (JST)
