I have been interested in philosophy since I was in junior high school, and when I think about the Japanese language, I often find myself thinking about philosophical issues at the same time. For example, the Japanese binding particle “wa” has the function of transcending grammatical logic and fixing the topic of the entire sentence until its period, and there has been a unsolved problem about what the “subject” really is in the Japanese language. This is quite analogous to how philosophy attempts to describe the pre-logical or the meta-logical in a way as consistent as possible. And such attempts seem to resemble the act of teaching someone an unknown language.
