The purpose of this article is to clarify the condition of “subject-formation” in UEHARA Senroku's “the media of The Dead Person” theroy by focussing the listening method for “the wordings of The Dead Person”. This study analyzed UEHARA's works texts on “The Dead Person” and clarified the following five points. 1. Listening “the wordings of The Dead Person” as “the media of The Dead Person” is an important moment for generating “subjectivity” in learning. The intention for listening “the wordings of The Dead Person” correctly is firstly made by the grief and heartbreak of “the living person” who confronts the death of familiar person. The self-reflected subjectivity of “the living person” becomes unstable state by the impact of this grief and heartbreak. Then the intention for listening method for “the wordings of The Dead Person” made to be stronger by falling into this crisis situation. 2. In order to listen “the wordings of The Dead Person” and to reach the stage of “co-existence co-living and co-struggle with The Dead Person” everyone must use the human abilities which have been preserved in the form of religion in histroy. Accordingly UEHARA adopted Buddhism method of Nichiren's approach that inquired the relationship and mind in religion world e.g. the actual image on the relationship of “The Dead Person and the living person as one”. 3. However UEHARA didn't select the religious doctrine method. But he selected the academic method that can check the human abilities which have been preserved in the form of religion in histroy relatively. The significance of this UEHARA's method is to complete conditions for listening “the wordings of The Dead Person” with mentioned below two reasons. 4. One reason is as follows. In order to recognize causes and backgrounds of the death of familiar person correctly the academic method which has obejectivity and evidential approaches is indispenable. 5. Another reason is as follows. UEHARA proposed the composition that is “objective and evidential recognition / religious mind” for listening “the wordings of The Dead Person”. He planed a strong dynamic “turn and return” between “numerator / denominator” in this composition. In his logic this dynamic “turn and return” makes the circulation of critical checking function between these two momens in human mind. According his plan learners can hold the endless critical mind and motivation for investigating “the wordings of The Dead Person” as “ something” (etwas).
