A Japanese Perspective on Dewey's Intangible Meanings

View File

In this paper, I endeavor to interpret the nature of Dewey's intangible, unconsummated meanings from the perspective of the classical Japanese aesthetic canon of yugen. Seen from the standpoint of yugen, I make the case that Dewey's intangibles are not to be comprehended as winged shafts of consciousness speeding on their way to a supersensible intentional possibility, but as apprehensions of non-thematic patterns of shadows focal texts as field-events cast as they recede into penumbral darkness.
