In the traditional Japanese literature, people used to attach much importance to 'yugen' and 'wabi'. 'Yugen' is the subtle and profound quiet beauty 'Wabi' is quiet refinement. These concepts are based on imagination. But Shiki made much use of realism as a methodology and also hit upon an idea of sketch, a technique of drawing and then proposed the philosopher Hegel's theory of 'Aufheben', 'Sublimation' as a true literature. He thought of how to use the selection of combination with realism. He advocated ''the 3rd literature; Non imaginary and non realistic literature''.
