Kohei is currently an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Tokyo. He received his Ph.D. from Humboldt University in Berlin. He works on ecology and political economy from a Marxist perspective. His latest bestseller, Capital in the Anthropocene, has been credited for inspiring a resurgence of interest in Marxist thought throughout Japan. With a deep desire to continue his research on post-capitalism and the Anthropocene, he felt the necessity to interact with theories and practices that are rapidly developing in Europe, especially in Germany, as a response to the deepening of the climate and economic crisis.
