Abstract

22:4 Fall 2014 political censorship. Her point -- "how could the film simultaneously be masturbatory and exculpatory?" -- lays out the challenge her essay pursues. In his intellectual history, "Interstitial Movements in the Works of Hanada Kiyoteru: A Preliminary Study," Ken Yoshida elaborates another understudied twentieth-century Japanese theorist. Yoshida can show Hanada's influence on critic Nakahara Yusuke, writer Abe Kobo, artist Katsuragawa Hiroshi, and filmmakers Teshigahara Hiroshi and Matsumoto Toshio, all intellectuals vastly better studied than Hanada. Like Cather, Yoshida's careful reconstruction of an intellectual's life world and innovative writing helps restore an important thinker's place to intellectual history. Political shunning, coterie politics, and the author's own implosive or poetic expression require that Yoshida reconstruct an intellectual history around Hanada. Late nineteenth- and twentieth-century Japanese intellectual history, as Douglas Howland's careful work has also demonstrated, requires taking seriously the interpretive possibilities of the European Enlightenment. And Yoshida introduces the basic tropes for Hanada. These include multiplicities, irresolvable difference, disjunction, "sand logic," preoccupation with the elusive numina, and the inorganic. As with Cather's work, Yoshida's case study gives access to an inventive intellect in a crisis mode of thinking. Nothing prevents its wider use. Cheehyung Harrison Kim's "North Korea's
