'Place' and 'Being-time': Spatiotemporal Concepts in the Thought of Nishida Kitarō and Dōgen Kigen

Abstract

Presented here is a comparative analysis of spatiotemporal concepts in the thought of Nishida and Do gen, arguing that both thinkers articulate fundamental notions about being and self/subject through them. It starts with an analysis of the notions of 'world' (sekai) and 'place' (basho) as well as time and order in Nishida's work, which is followed by an effort to elucidate his philosophical position by comparing his views to those of Dogen and by demonstrating their similarity in several important aspects, thus showing that Nishida's philosophy, regardless of its debt to Western influence, is firmly embedded in the tradition of Asian thought.
