The Kyoto School grafts the presuppositions and methodology of Hegel's idealism onto the Japanese Buddhist worldview. In The Kyoto School's Takeover of Hegel, Peter Suares evaluates the success of the three principal figures of the School-Nishida Kitaro, Tanabe Hajime, and Nishitani Keiji-in integrating these dissimilar ideas into a coherent religious philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Kyoto School's Takeover of Hegel is precisely what scholarship should be: clearly written, critical, well documented, and erudite. Peter Suares possesses the rare attribute of being firmly grounded in both Japanese and European traditions. This book is a tour de force study for both Hegel and Kyoto School scholarship. -- Brian Schroeder, Rochester Institute of Technology
Peter Suares' The Kyoto School's Takeover of Hegel is a detailed study that highlights the confusing relationship between Hegel and the Kyoto School philosophers. It challenges one to rethink the spell and presence Hegel exerted over his critics. Scholars and students of Kyoto School philosophy interested in its connections with Western philosophy would want to read this important work of scholarship, and so would those interested in Hegel's impact beyond European thought. -- John W. M. Krummel, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Suares's first book-length publication on philosophy fills a conspicuous lacuna of scholarship on the complex relationship between Hegel and the philosophers of the Kyoto School.... Overall, Suares's study is well-documented with an extensive bibliography divided into sections according to subjects for convenient reference. Textual references to Hegel and the Kyoto scholars make use of both translations and the sources in their original languages, providing guidance for readers at various levels of expertise.... The Kyoto School's Takeover of Hegel is a model work of comparative scholarship and makes a highly valuable contribution to the field. All in all, this work boldly charts exciting frontiers in world philosophy, demonstrating the potential fruit that may come from thorough and intelligent cross-cultural comparative studies. * Japanese Journal of Religious Studies *
