Can James Joyce be regarded as an Irish nationalist? He was almost thoroughly educated at Jesuit schools, where students did not learn the Irish language and sports like the Irish Christian Brothers, which produced many Irish nationalists. Living far away from his native country, he continued to describe the old Dublin with which he was familiar in his novels. On the other hand, he never went back home in the Irish Revolutionary Period. Trieste was an Oriental workshop for Joyce. Joyce probably read Giambattista Vico around 1905. In 1923 when Joyce started writing Finnegans Wake, he reread Vico, admiring his positive division of human history into recurring cycles. Vico also went to one or two Jesuit schools for short periods. He was familiar with some Jesuit books on China and Japan and could thus include some knowledge of China (especially Confucius) and Japan in La Scienza Nuova, comparing them with ancient Egypt and Other countries. Although basically set in Dublin, Joyce would have been encouraged by Vico to describe China and Japan transcending time and space in Finnegans Wake. From the modern perspective of Globalism, the Jesuit adaptation must be highly evaluated.
