    Beschreibung "Existentialism had an enormous impact on post-war Japanese intellectual history. The works of existentialist philosophers such as Martin Heidegger, Karl Jaspers and Albert Camus were analysed in great detail in Japan. It was, however, Jean-Paul Sartre who was most closely associated with existentialism. Sartre had an extraordinarily strong effect on Japanese post-war literature and philosophy, as well as Japanese art and politics. Sartre himself had a life-long fascination for Japan. In 1966 he visited the country on a month-long lecture tour with Simone de Beauvoir. His impact on Japanese post-war literature was high: the works of many important Japanese authors of that time—among others Abe Kôbo (1924-1993) and the Nobel prize laureate Ôe Kenzaburô (born 1935)—are strongly influenced by Sartre’s philosophy of existence. Sartre’s existentialism had a great impact on Japanese movie directors as well. Particularly Ôshima Nagisa (born 1932), a leading figure of the Japanese New Wave Cinema, known in the West for his controversial film Ai no korrida (The Empire of the Senses, 1976) was strongly influenced by Sartre’s philosophy. Like many Japanese post-war intellectuals, Ôshima
    was attracted to Sartre’s idea of the engaged intellectual. Moreover, many of the things Ôshima wrote and filmed, remind one of the phenomenological analyses of Sartrean existentialism." (Information des Anbieters)
