QuotationFinished Burtt and Nishida (Unity of Opposites). N. is certainly the one philosopher to whom I respond the most. Kranth in Monumenta Nipponica suggests comparison between Nishida and the generation of 1898 in Spain. [Miguel de] Unamuno and Ortega [y Gasset]. Don't know Unamuno but have him here. Try him maybe!
