Promotional Information

This book looks at how the Japanese see themselves and others and challenges many Western assumptions about Japanese society.


'An ambitious formulation, with all the attendant excitement of originality ... This book ... takes its place as a contribution to ongoing anthropological debate and to a greater understanding of Japanese thought processes.' Joy Hendry, Man 'The authors urge a 'reconsideration' by Western-trained scholars of concepts of self in both Western and non-Western culutures ... [and] emphasizes the common humanity, the seeking, the vulnerability of all people, individually and collectively.' Paul Spackman, International Mind
