  • Th. W. Adorno "Kierkegaard. Construction of the Aesthetic"

    Th.W. Adorno, Yasuo Yamamoto( Role: Sole author ,  Th. W. Adorno "Kierkegaard. Construction of the Aesthetic")

    Misuzu Shobo  ( ISBN:978-4622030829

     More details

    Total pages:386   Responsible for pages:1-386   Language:Japanese Book type:Scholarly book

    Adorno's first work. The author interprets Kierkegaard's work not from his philosophical intentions, but rather from metaphors used to explain his philosophical concepts. So re-interpreted, Kierkegaard's work is not as a "philosophy unto death", what his philosophy potentially was, as he resolves all the concrete individuals into an abstract religious sphere, but rather an “aesthetic" work. The ephemeral moments of fragmental metaphors construct a place where concrete things can pass over directly to religious transcendence. It is, according to the author, the sphere of "aesthetic", e.g. the place of art.

  • Primitive Chritianity

    Rudolf Bultmann, Seiichi Yagi, Yasuo Yamamoto( Role: Joint translator ,  Primitive Christianity in Its Contemporary Setting)

    Shinkyo Shuppan  ( ISBN:4-400-10506-7

     More details

    Total pages:456   Responsible for pages:175-430   Language:Japanese Book type:Other

    "Primitive Christianity in Its Contemporary Setting" translation in Japanese. Bultmann takes an intellectual distance from the traditional Eurocentric view of Christianity, fully reflecting the continuity from the ancient world (Greece and Hebrew), as well as not ignoring great influences from the contemporary Hellenistic religions. He describes the “Primitive Christianity" as a syncretistic religion in which various influences flowed in, emphasizing it was of universal significance as an "existence understanding"

  • "A record of a sincere soul that reflects German political culture" Dorothee Sölle's memoir "Gegenwind" book review

    YAMAMOTO, Yasuo

    Open space for Books   ( 752 )   12 - 13   2020.8

     More details

    Language:Japanese   Publishing type:Book review, literature introduction, etc.   Publisher:Christian Document Center   Single Work  

    A review of the autobiographical memory of Dorothee Sölle (1929-2003), a female theologian who was a focal point of the self-renewing Christianity in post-war Germany, where it was an essential challenge, like in Japan, not only to rise again from the material ruin but also from the wholesale spiritual devastation. Sölle, who never left the traditionally Christian world, kept the steps with the process of world history after the war, since her participation in the Vietnam anti-war movement. She always has stood between the conservatives, who want to keep their tradition, and the radical left, which bravely faces the contradictions of the world, has been torn from both points of view but united the two at the same time. In doing so, she contributed to the formation of the spiritual culture of ordinary people of post-war Germany. The article is a review of the full translation of an autobiography of a remarkable woman who is important but little known in Japan.A review of the autobiographical memory of Dorothee Sölle (1929-2003), a female theologian who was a focal point of the self-renewing Christianity in post-war Germany, where it was an essential challenge, like in Japan, not only to rise again from the material ruin but also from the wholesale spiritual devastation.
