Amphibiology Lectures: The Third Century (No.6)

“Macro” and “Micro” for Haruki Murakami

In the previous three consecutive lectures on the “move” to the Haruki Murakami’s world, I pointed out the differences between circumstance settings which were seen as “macro-cosmos” and “micro-cosmos” caused by generation gap of only three years between him and me.

The difference due to “cosmos” seems to have passed around my and his generations like changing season. It seems that the barometer for our social climate had indicated in the shift from “macroscopic” to “microscopic”.
