"I want to express my feeling of admiration for the work. I think it will be very helpful as an introduction to the West of Nishida's philosophy and, thus as a gateway to East-West dialogue." --Jan Van Bragt, Nazan Institute for Religion and Culture
"Carter's work fills an important niche in Nishida scholarship by providing, in clear and concise language, the best introduction to Nishida's philosophy... Japansese scholar Thomas P. Kasulis has written a superlative ten-page forward that is worth the price of admission all by extensive bibliography and index...well organized. I anticipate that Carter's book will become a popular university textbook chosen by teachers of Japanese philosophy and the Philosophy of Religion. Indeed, I would recommend that scholars who are looking to include a "comparative" element...seriously consider choosing Nishida's philosophy, and Carter's text in particular."--David Edward Shaner, Furman University
"Those who reflect about philosophy and religion should like what Robert E. Carter has done in this book. He has engaged with perhaps the most important of modern Japanese philosophers...It is what cross-cultural philosophy should be."--Ninian Smart
"This work will serve as a valuable reference both for those seeking a grounding in a significant contribution to human thought in the 20th century and for those wishing to situate some key themes which repeatedly appear in East-Western Buddhist-Christian dialogue."--Ruben L. F. Habito, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
