Shūichi Katō (加藤 周一, Katō Shūichi, 19 September 1919 – 5 December 2008) was a Japanese critic and author best known for his works on literature and culture. Born in Tokyo, Katō trained as a medical doctor at the University of Tokyo during World War II, specializing in haematology. The experience of living under Japan’s fascist government and American bombing of Tokyo would shape a lifelong opposition to war, especially nuclear arms, and imperialism. It was also in this period that began to write.
