Abstract / Description of output

This article is the second translation of the preface and first chapter of Hatano Seiichi's Time and Eternity (1943). A full translation of the text, published by Suzuki Ichiro (1920-2006) in 1963, is not easily accessible to most readers, while an excellent partial translation by Joseph O'Leary has recently been made accessible to a wider audience through the monumental work, Japanese Philosophy: A Sourcebook (University of Hawai'i Press, 2011). By providing a short historical introduction to both Hatano's life and works as a great thinker and teacher, this article intends to supplement O'Leary's contribution and therefore enable more readers to gain access to the opening sections of Hatano's Time and Eternity.
