Example text

Chogyu is rather simple and straightforward in claiming liberation from ascetic spiritualism, while Foucault argues not for liberation of desires but for creation of new pleasures without fear of such transgression as homosexuality, sadomasochism, drugs, etc. (« A 38 MASAHIRO HAMASHITA Preface to Transgression »). Thus, their concepts of pleasure are different. As far as the attitudes to epistemology is concerned, in Chogyu’s case we can easily understand his simple realist stance and his claim lies in the instinct and life rather than recognition and theory.

Instead, he sets instinctism and vitalism as alternative ideas. « What to regret are those who cannot conceive the value of life but only anxious for food, not body but only clothes. That is because they don’t know what to do with life in this world » (777). Modern Japan’s national policies during Chogyu’s time were in total support of westernization with a few exceptions; progress, enlightenment and civilization following the model of Western countries. The end was supposed to be westernization of state and 36 MASAHIRO HAMASHITA nation, while the means was civilization.

Cultural expressions had gradually become a part of the free capitalist movement, irrespective of the fact that most cultural expressions were deeply rooted in local, national and continental traditions. Horkheimer and Adorno and the other members of the School (Walter Benjamin, Jürgen Habermas, and others) worked from a Marxist-Hegelian perspective.
