  3. Cat, All Too Cat: A Philosophy Cat Story


Once upon a time, in a German town in the nineteenth century, there was a cat that philosophized. His name was Neowtzsche—”All the cats are happy. They do not depend on others, they never envy others.”   

What is this cat? You may ask. People referred to him as “the philosophy cat.” But he was just a cat. No different from any other cats on the streets. Some people might reject this story as a logical failure or an explanatory contradiction. Wait a moment. What exists is not a construct out of human brains, but living beings. Life is possible only by contradictions and failures. Well, this is enough as an introduction. Let us hear what this cat has to say about being a cat—thus writes Japan’s “Nietzsche evangelist” Dr. Shiratori.
