The Significance of Einstein's Theory of Relativity in Nishida's "Logic of Field"
Abstract

This essay presents aspects of the philosophy of nature of Nishida Kitarō (1870–1945) (Kyoto School) and its relation to the physics of his day. Which aspects of Einstein's Theory of Relativity are treated in Nishida's Logic of Field? Through exact explanations of the fundamental differences between physics and philosophy this essay aims to clarify the construction of logic in philosophy and physics while considering interdisciplinary aspects.
