"Nietzsche on Morality" in Japan

I owe to Yuma Oto the translation of the 2nd edition of NOM into Japanese. Mr. Oto writes:
1. The publication of the Japanese translation has made the Japanese academic philosophy magazine Philcul feature "Analytic Nietzsche Studies" with articles by three Nietzsche scholars (Tsunafumi Takeuchi [Ryukoku University], Kota Umeda [Sophia University], Kota Taniyama [Kyorin University]) and notably by Takashi Iida (Professor emeritus of Keio University, ex-president of the Philosophical Association of Japan, also known as an eminent philosopher of language and logic [he has studied philosophy at the University of Michigan back in the 1970s] and a translator of Quine’s From a Logical Point of View). Of course, all the articles address the book. It has been just published yesterday!

2. In The Shukan Dokushojin (one of the two major weekly book-review-newspapers in Japan) July 22, the book has been selected as one of the three most impressive books published in the first half of the year by Susumu Morimura (Professor emeritus of Hitotsubashi University, ex-president of Japan Association of Legal Philosophy, also known as a translator of Parfit’s Reasons and Persons and On What Matters I & II).


3. Also in the same Dokushojin March 18, Takao Eguchi (Professor of Rikkyo University, known as a leading scholar of Deleuze in Japan) has published a generally positive review of the book.
I'm delighted by this and grateful to Mr. Oto for making this work available to Japanese scholars and students.
