Lecture on Kotaro Yoshida (2)

When Yoshida was eighteen, he developed a sophisticated theory of values. Simply, Yoshida’s theory is as follows: Of the three great sufferings of mankind, namely desire, disease and death, desire comes first. Yoshida answered the question: Do you live to eat or eat to live? The man who works nine to five, five days a week, at a job he hates to do, to earn money to buy material things he desires and food to eat, lives to eat. The free man one who works if he wishes, at a job he likes and doesn’t have many desires for material things, eats in order to stay alive.
