Abstract: This paper intends to outline the reception of Hegelian dialectic by the Kyoto School. At the same time, it highlights how this Japanese School has tried to integrate the Hegelian perspective introducing new dialectical systems that have the “absolute nothingness” as their starting point.
Abstract: The article proposes a descriptive reading about subjectivity in Karl Löwith, from his first work (Das Individuum in der Rolle des Mitmenschen, 1928) to the last naturalisc essays. The starting point is the criticism of the metaphysical and idealistic subjectivism in order to reconstruct an authentic idea of the subject as “relationship”, i.e. an ontological union of “I – you – history – nature”. We also focus on the points of tangency between the thought of Nishida Kitarō and Löwith’s philosophy of relationship.
