Yoshimoto Takaaki 吉本 隆明

A book that I wanted to remind myself of before it disappears over the horizon of my memory, published back in February, (2013), by Kawade Shobo, an interesting hardback commemorative of Yoshimoto Takaaki, by Yoshida Jun, full of quotes and passages taken from his books juxtaposed against photographical portraits. Although I didn't make a note of the translator, the quotes and passages are in English translation, among the many photographs there's a small number documenting his meeting with French philosopher Michel Foucault during his visit to Japan.
