Book Title:Le sauvage et l'artifice: les japonais devant la nature
Author(s):Berque, Augustin
Publisher Name:Gallimard
Place of Publication:Paris
Date of Publication:1986
Annotation:After observing dramatic differences in points of view toward wild nature and the social construction of nature, Berque was prompted to examine Japanese understandings of the relationship between society, space, and nature by utilizing a distinctly Japanese unitary hermeneutic in contrast to a Western dualist one. He systematically explains Japanese perspectives on seasonal themes, mountains, water, vegetation, forests, the difficulties of dualism, the perception of nature, and finally, the ultimate subjectivity in Japanese thought.
