Seminar « The End of Philosophy in Tanabe’s Philosophy as Metanoetics »

EASt-ULB PhD Seminar 2018 Vol. 2

by Quentin Blaevoet, Université de Lille 3

In this presentation, I will try to show how the Tanabean conception of the end of philosophy points towards the same direction as Husserlian and Nishidian philosophy in three steps. First, I will de ne Tanabe’s concept of « metanoesis », thereby showing its signi cance to the eld of philosophy. Second, I will relate this notion to the notion of the « end of history ». Finally, I will conlude that Tanabe shares his view with Husserl and Nishida that the purpose of philosophy is to constitute a common social world that could save us from what is widely understood today as a « crisis of humanity ».
