Miki Kiyoshi 三木清 (1897-1945) is one of the Kyoto School’s philosophers and renowned disciples of Nishida Kitarō 西田幾多郎 (1870-1945). Unfortunately, he passed away at the age of forty-eight in prison under the coercion of Japanese military government. This makes him unable to finish the chapter on “language” of his representative monograph «The Logic of Imagination» 構想力の論理 as planned. In this talk, I would like to reconstruct this unwritten chapter through the concepts of “rhetoric” and “public sphere”.
