Evanescence and Form
An Introduction to Japanese Culture
By (author) Charles Shiro Inouye
Evanescence and Form by Charles Shiro Inouye
Book DescriptionThis book explores the Japanese notion of hakanasa - the evanescence of all things. Responses to this idea have been various and even contradictory: asceticism, fatalism, conformism, hedonism, materialism, and careerism. This book examines the ties between an epistemology of constant change and Japan's formal emphasis on etiquette and visuality.
