Taketani Mitsuo (武谷 三男, October 2, 1911 - April 22, 2000) was a prominent Japanese physicist and Marxist. He published his Doctrine of the Three Stages of Scientific Development in 1936. This was the first Japanese contribution to the philosophy of science. He applied Hegel's theory of dialectics, with the triad Phenomenon, Substance, and Essence. Having worked with Yukawa Hideki as he developed his discovery of the meson, he used this as an example of a new substance.
