About the Book

Applies Dogen Kigen's religious philosophy and the philosophy of Nishida Kitaro to the philosophical problem of personal identity, probing the applicability of the concept of non-self to the philosophical problems of selfhood, otherness, and temporality which culminate in the conundrum of personal identity.


'Gereon Kopf … does an outstanding job in taking on the challenge of relating the complex thought of Japanese giants Dogen and Nishida to various Western conceptions of the person.' - Philosophy East and West

'Kopf … makes a significant contribution to east-west dialogue.' - Religious Studies Review
