Teruaki Georges Sumioka (?? ?? Sumioka Teruaki?), who has a Ph.D. in Art (Tokyo University of the Arts) and a M.Litt. in Philosophy (University of Tokyo)[1], is a Guest Professor of Film Studies, Johannes Gutenberg University (FB2, Mainz, Germany)[2], Guest Professor of Art at Osaka University of Arts (Correspondence Division Faculty of Arts, Osaka, Japan)[3] and tenured Associate Professor of Management at Tokai University (School of Business Studies, Kumamoto, Japan)[4]. He was born 1962, in Tokyo. He is a philosopher, film theorist (Film Grammar and Media Business), and creator. Living in Mainz, Germany.


In the 80's, Sumioka started with Jurisprudence, based upon Hegel and Max Weber.[5] In consequence of Wittgenstein's Language game and Speech act of Ordinary language philosophy, he studied Ontology of Act and Agent of Act from the aspect of Logic against the Epistemology of modern Subjectivism begun by Descartes.[6] On the line of Debate on social system and communication between Habermas and Luhmann, he turned down even Heidegger's Ontology as Subjectivism, developed Sartre's intersubjective Existentialism and invented newly logical-ontologocal concepts: Autarkeia, Duplarkeia and Plurarkeia. He maintained that the act vouched for by others sets up retrospectively the existence of the agent.[7]

After that in 90's, Sumioka inquired theoretically Hermeneutic circle of Dilthey and Gadamer and researched empirically the existence of Servise and Body corporate.[8][9][10] Simultaneously, he played active as a planner of Special News Program of TV Asahi Network as well.[11]

Sumioka took a new turn in 2000's and pursued as Story Analysis the Film Grammar to make the act and the agent artificially. After Baumgarten, he thinks that beauty is the sensitivitical argument on truth.[12] To explain this, he turned his attention to Diagogue in film instead of Dialogue and found Diactic instead of Plato's Dialectic. This Diagogue exists not only between the persons in a film but also between the filmmaker and the audience, so that the T Grand Structure of film consist of both Diagogues. On the image of film, he regards Griffith Montage with real Multicoverage of cameras as more effective than Eisenstein Montage by the image translation from the words of the Script. Also on the story of film, he advocates the Spiral Up Structure that approaches the central theme with episode by episode from various aspects.[13]

In recent years, Sumioka is interested in Postmodernism, therefore in Anime with symbolic representation and Comedy by contextual distortion as well.[14]
