「言葉」の「言」 – Heidegger übersetzt:

“Das Ereignis der lichtenden Botschaft der Anmut”

*prust*

Edit: …aber immerhin, wenn fünf Jahrzehnte später ein schöner Essay über Sei Shōnagon dabei herauskommt…

Asada Akira (浅田彰) in 1986


Asada Akira talking about fractals. Nowadays, this is more interesting as a curiosity than for the contents (as the lone YouTube commenter remarks, he certainly does look young). Be sure to check out the rest of the series as well – there are eight clips in all.
