Murakami’s anticlassical stance takes the shape of a brand new, intellectually built-in and reasoned inspiration known as “polymorphic liberalism,” which argues that conventional “progressivism”—the trust that people have an final particular direction on which they're going to achieve an awesome social and political-economic system—can not meet today’s demanding situations.

Example text

All of this was to strengthen or maintain the hegemonic system dominated by the United States.  More generally, neoconservatism was nothing other than an emphasis on reviving the dynamism of industrialization, symbolized by advanced technology, from within a classical framework of economic liberalism and nationalism. However, as I will show below, its chances of success were low.  However, whether this pure capitalism can materialize as expected—particularly in international relations on a global scale—is a question that contains substantial difficulties.

This is because those religions have been intolerant of freedom of thought.  What then is this human nature?  Certainly, even in the nineteenth­century modern progressivism already mentioned, given that liberalism in politics and economics was one of its critical supports, liberalism was one of the most overused concepts.  I am not trying to advocate classical liberalism as it was.  10 However, even if freedom of action is guaranteed, freedom of thought, or freedom of the mind, is not necessarily guaranteed.

20 If the expression "hermeneutic" is too awkward, what this means, in short, is the creation of an image of the world for everyday life and of how that is organized.  In people's lives it will be forever indispensable.  But in transcendental thought, it is not easy to endure the splitting up of the observing and the observed selves.
