restricted access Nishida Kitarōs Philosophy of Absolute Nothingness (Zettaimu no Tetsugaku) and Modern Theoretical Physics


The purpose of this article is to explain how Nishida incorporated into his philosophy of absolute nothingness the standpoint of operationalism, elaborated by Percy W. Bridgman (1882–1961), who received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1946, in order to undermine the adequacy of classical logic as far as the description of reality was concerned.
