Publisher Description

Neurotic Beauty is a remarkable reevaluation of Japan’s role in the modern world. 

It includes a new assessment of the events leading up to the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima, and of the potential role of Japanese philosophy in creating a dynamic 

approach to human nature and our understanding of reality. The book also shows the 

interrelatedness of various facets of Japanese history and society, including psychological orientation, pop culture, and Japan’s vibrant craft tradition. Finally, it concludes with a possible prediction, that whereas the United States will not be able to escape from its neoliberal economic categories and its commitment to a self-defeating philosophy of “growth,” Japan might surprise us, and turn out to be the frontrunner in the development of post-capitalist alternatives in the 21st century. Written in a personal and accessible style, the book is likely to provide a focus for debate about issues of economy, ecology, and sustainability for years to come.
