Abstract:

This article argues for the usefulness of approaching specific aspects of Keiji Nishitani's thinking, in Religion and Nothingness, as developing out of a confrontation with central themes in the work of Friedrich Nietzsche. In particular, I interpret Nishitani's discussion of "the personal and impersonal" as a response to the issue of loving fate (amor fati) in Nietzsche's writings. I thus consider Nishitani's approach to amor fati as both a background for thinking through his critical relationship to Nietzsche and as a focal point for thinking through key insights in his creative appropriation of Zen.
