    Wisdom of the Unseen An Inquiry into the Reality of Things The book “Wisdom of the Unseen” presents a worldview which is compatible with not only the ontological worldviews of the ancient and medieval times but also incorporates and extends many of the advancements of the modern science and philosophy. The worldview presented by this book reminds me the following words Prof. Izutsu once wrote about Oriental ontological philosophy: “It is my conviction that the time has come when we must begin making efforts to revive the creative energy contained in this kind of philosophy in such a way that its spirit might be resuscitated in the form of a new philosophic worldview powerful enough and alive enough to cope with the new problems peculiar to the new historical epoch into which we have just entered. Such, it would seem, is the intellectual task that is imposed upon us. And in the course of carrying out this task, we Orientals shall and must learn precious lessons from the way contemporary Western existentialism is struggling to solve the problems of human existence in the very midst of the dehumanizing and dehumanized structure of modern society. I believe, only through this kind of intellectual collaboration will the much hoped for philosophical convergence of East and West be actualized.”
