Tomonubu?[edit]

The reading "-nubu" is a misprint in the Italian sources for this article. It is incorrect and should be erased right through.Falero (talk) 13:09, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Why is this article at "Tomonubu Imamichi"? This is not the correct reading of the Japanese (as seen in the article, where "Tomonobu" is used right through, and there is no indication in the article of why the reading Tomonubu is adopted for the location.

Yes, good point.
I've checked the two Italian links. One uses nobu, the other nubu.

German WP has one match for him, as nobu.
There are no matches in French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, or Swedish.
But most of these languages have matches for other people named nobu, while nubu never matches anywhere.

The Heidegger Claim[edit]

I've removed the following paragraph for a number of reasons:

According to him, Heidegger's concept of the Dasein, formulated in Sein und Zeit, was inspired — although Heidegger remains silent on this — by Okakura Kakuzo's concept of das in-der-Welt-sein (to be in the being of the world) expressed in The Book of Tea in an attempt to describe Zhuangzi's philosophy for Westerners. Imamichi's teacher had offered the German translation of The Book of Tea to Heidegger in 1919, after having followed lessons with him the year before.[1]
In 1968, Imamichi was invited by Hans-Georg Gadamer, a student of Heidegger, for lectures at Heidelberg, but their relationship became very cool after Imamichi pointed out that Heidegger had not given the source of his concept of the Dasein. Imamichi and Gadamer renewed contact four years later during an international congress.[1]
  1. It's given disproportionate prominence in what is otherwise a two paragraph article about someone's life.
  2. It isn't possible to verify the claim. None of the standard works on Heidegger's life or intellectual development record that he even read the book (Richardson, Kisiel, Safranski, Ott, etc). The concept of Dasein was not formulated in Sein und Zeit but was used explicitly in seminars from 1919/20, and was preceded by equivalent (more or less) terms like "factical life" in earlier works and seminars (see Kisiel). Kakuzo's book makes brief reference to "the art of being in the world" (one sentence--page 32), and attributes the concept to "Taoism." I think we need more than hearsay from Imamichi to support the claim that this one sentence was a significant influence on Heidegger's development.
  3. The hearsay is compounded, because the citation is not to Imamichi's original text (which isn't online), but to a quotation from it by Anne Fagot-Largeau, at a dead link.KD Tries Again (talk) 15:27, 30 April 2013 (UTC)KD Tries Again
