Abstract

within the multiplicity that is Asia. We will discover a credo. And I believe we will also discover the basis for a new morality. ¯ Oe and Ishihara were once literary friends, but their differing views have made ¯ ¯ them implacable enemies. Ishihara considers Oe to be a traitor to the state while Oe deems his rival to be a dangerous fascist, yet, as Nathan notes, both consider themselves to be moralists and both ``are driven by a quest for the substantial sense of self that has eluded Japan since the earliest days of modernization.'' After Nathan left ¯ Oe's residence, he met Ishihara, the powerful governor of Tokyo, walking alone down the street. He muses, ``Leaving one and encountering the other in the space of a few minutes, I felt that I had traveled between the poles of the ambivalence that continues to be a troubling condition of contemporary Japanese life.'' Nathan is not entirely pessimistic about Japan's future. He notes, for example, the expanding relationship between Japan and China, in terms not only of trade but also of cultural relationships and exchanges.
