Japanese family and society : words from Tongo Takebe, a Meiji era sociologist by Tongo Takebe( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although current study in sociology emphasizes multiculturalism, sociological theory, grounded in the [udeo-Chriscian perspectives, provides only limited insight which can result in an inaccurate understanding of societal development. As Takebe noted in 1904, "the basic historical assumption of Christian creation theory has been penetrating the Westerner's mind, even the scholar's mind."" "Japanese Family and Society: Words from Tongo Takebe, A Meiji Era Sociologist provides a translation of the original work by Tongo Takebe. Takebe's unique viewpoint sheds light on both Eastern and Western perspectives used to describe societal development and a classification system of knowledge. An introductory chapter discusses the history of Japan with an emphasis on the social, political, and family influences that shaped Japanese social theory in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Another discusses the contributions of the forefathers of sociology in Japan." "A major goal of the translation of volume 1 (Prolegomenon) and part of volume 4 (Social Statics) ofTakebe's classic four-volume treatise was to provide his writings to English-speaking audiences in a readable, contemporary form. Takebe's brilliant and insightful words provide a discussion of major scientific knowledge, the strengths and weaknesses in current sociological thought, and the advantages of combining Eastern and Western thought."--Jacket
