Abstract

In this essay is focused on a comparative examination of the renowned Kyoto School of Philosophy and German education philosopher Johann Friedrich Herbart (1776–1841). The Kyoto School, and in particular its progenitor, Kitaro Nishida (1870–1945), was deeply influenced both directly and indirectly by Herbart, who is commonly known as the “father of modern pedagogy.” In particular, I refer to Nishida’s focus on Herbart’s monolithic worldview of Realism and his emphasis on refinement of the sense of touch in his practice-based theory of learning. In Nishida’s philosophy, this is the notion of the “logic of place.”
