Pincus follows Karatani in bringing Heidegger into the discussion, though her grasp of his ideas seems no firmer than her guide's.(62) She adverts to Heidegger's "Conversation" in considering the appropriateness of Kuki's use in "Iki" no kozo of methods derived from Western philosophy, and then asks: "Had Kuki not in fact already succumbed to the temptation of the West when he spoke of iki as 'sensuous radiance through whose lively delight there breaks the radiance of something suprasensuous'?"(63) The question is otiose because Kuki could never have spoken of iki in anything like those Heideggerian terms—nor did Tezuka Tomio (Heidegger's interlocutor in the original conversation) "amend Kuki's definition of iki" in the straight Heideggerese that Pincus cites in her next footnote.(64) If she had read Tezuka's account of his talk with Heidegger, Pincus would have learned that what the latter presents as a dialogue "occasioned by the visit of Professor Tezuka" is in fact a freely composed fantasy with only a few tenuous points of contact with the actual conversation.(65) Indeed, recent research on Heidegger's "Conversation" has shown that much of the characterization of iki that Heidegger puts in the mouth of his "Japanese" interlocutor in fact derives from a German monograph on Noh drama that appeared the year before Tezuka's visit (and which Heidegger mentions in the "Conversation").(66) [+]
