Repenser l'Ordre, repenser l'héritage : Paysage intellectuel du Japon (XVIIe-XIXe siècles)

Managing editor Frédéric GIRARD, Annick HORIUCHI, Mieko MACÉ

0.00 CHF tax incl.

After the Shoguns Tokugawa pacified Japan, an intellectual effervescence coincided with an unprecedented expansion of the economy. Certain questions recur with remarkable insistence among the master-thinkers of the time. How to give meaning to a political order that has no bearing on social reality? How to govern when the country's wealth is in the hands of its merchants? Other, more insidious questions undermine nonetheless the foundations of the regime. What is real knowledge? How to reconcile the learning handed down from the Ancients with new understanding resulting from the observation of nature and contact with Europe? The construction of a national identity was crucial to Japanese intellectuals, tugged between China's weighty legacy and the lure of the West.
