I'm looking for more info. Would anyone like to guess an alternative spelling of the name? --Sam 17:12 Nov 14, 2002 (UTC)

What's wrong with current spelling? You mean the order? -- Taku 00:16 Feb 24, 2003 (UTC)
No, I just mean some Japanese names are translated slightly differently in spelling sometimes -- for example, Kotoku Shusui has a couple of redirects with alternative spellings (click "what links here"). I wondered if there would be any for this name. --Sam
For Tsuji Jun there are no long vowels or long consonants that would generally trigger such a redirect as is the case for Kotoku Shusui, whose first and last name in proper Japanese must use macrons in order to be recognized properly and match up with the kanji language characters. I did a 120+ page thesis on Tsuji, so if anyone wants more information I have a lot of it for them. The thing is, no one I know of other than myself has done any lengthy work on him in English, but that makes it a perfect research topic. --Kotoku

Epicurean ?[edit]

I don't think the (unsourced!) qualification of this person as an 'Epicurean' is enough to put him in the categories Category:Epicureanism and Category:Epicurean philosophers. I will delete these from the page. --Fabullus (talk) 23:16, 2 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please forgive my lack of proper citations. Tsuji and others considered him a follower of Epicurus. For example, he wrote a play: "Death of an Epicurean" (“Kyōraku-shugi-sha no Shi”) which expresses his apparently tragic embrace of Epicureanism as a result of his realization of "Panta rhei" (a phrase after which he helped name the Pantarai-sha theatre group). I'll see about putting a citation in there... If you are interested in this kind of thing I have a lot more on this. --Kotoku

If you find this interesting...[edit]

Let me know on this Talk Page and I can put up more or maybe do something else to help.--Kotoku —Preceding undated comment added 10:30, 10 September 2010 (UTC).Reply[reply]

English sources?[edit]
