Description

This essay was not translated into English until 1995 yet first published in Japan in 1935. By raising the question of 'Buddhist history' in the mind of Shinran, the medieval founder of Shin Buddhism, it challenges readers to take historicity as a legitimate part of the tradition while at the same time insisting on historicist presuppositions.
