Murasaki Shikibu's The Tale of Genji

Philosophical Perspectives

Edited by James McMullen

Oxford Studies in Philosophy and Literature

  • Brings together experts in Japanese premodern culture to engage with the philosophical aspects of one of Japan's most famous literary works
  • Touches on topics in nearly every branch of philosophy
  • Challenges prevailing views of The Tale of Genji, situating it as a distinctly philosophical novel, and opens perspectives new to English language readers
