磯田道史と語る江戸のイノベーション
~「直虎」以降、改革者の系譜~

戦国時代から江戸時代へ、日本は動乱から独自の平和的秩序を築いた。
江戸時代は封建社会であっても高度に発達した市場社会となり、黒船来航後に欧米の近代的制度と接合することができたのである。
歴史家・磯田道史と日本文明研究所所長・猪瀬直樹との対話を通して、現在に至る日本人のイノベーションに関わる歴史的背景を探求する。

Prospectus of Japanese Civilization Institute

Japan has come to form a civilization of its own kind, in the realm of history, religion and culture.

In his book “The Clash of Civilizations,” professor Samuel Huntington places Japanese Civilization in a new position, apart from Chinese Civilization. Our foundation aims to research the following five mutually related categories that are not recognized by the Japanese people to be their identity and personality. Our goal is to study Japanese civilization and pass it down to people in and outside Japan, by actively communicating what we have learnt.

  • The field of Ideology, Philosophy and Ethics
    Japanese ideology, “yamato-gokoro (spirit of early Japan)” and spirit of “wa (harmony)”
  • The field of Economy and Management
    “shinise (long-established organizations)
  • The field of Industrial Art, and Technology
    Art, handicrafts, fashion, pop culture,
    architecture and technology
  • The field of Medicine
    Chinese medicine, Japanese food, and healthy food that prevents sickness
  • Overall
    Politics and Religion

Our goal is to contribute to peace and continuous development of Japan and the outside world, through deep research and activities for creating awareness.

Message from Director

Naoki Inose

Looking at world history, it is said that Europe is the only one that was able to create a model of modernization. However, apart from Europe, Japan is the only country that went through the process of creating a modernization of its own kind—that rivals well with that of Europe—and became a advanced country. Japan has been regarded as islands of disaster, suffering from numerous floods, eruptions, earthquakes and tsunami. But blessed with pure water not to mention the glorious four seasons, and peoples’ nature being moderate, imaginative, original and hardworking, Japan has come to develop a civilization of its own kind. Amid the globalization of the economy and communication amongst people, Japan and its people today need to think deeply as to what they believe in. A tolerant mind to accept other civilizations only begins by understanding their own. The role of Japan in international society is bound to become increasingly important. Japanese Civilization Institute is founded here as a place for capable people working together to tackle these kinds of issues.
