Axes de recherche

Trois axes de recherche transversaux sont enracinés dans des collaborations anciennes avec des partenaires français et étrangers. Ils renforcent la cohésion de l'unité en mobilisant des chercheurs issus des différentes équipes qui la composent.

Ces trois thématiques portent sur :

- les modalités d'échange entre pays riverains de la Méditerranée asiatique (l'Asie des réseaux)

- savoirs et savoir-faire techniques, scientifiques et médicaux en liaison avec le patrimoine culturel immatériel en Asie

- traductions des grands débats qui traversent les sciences sociales en Chine, au Japon et en Corée

Confucianism in Modern Japan

Conference - Jeudi 18 mai 2017 - 11:00Conférence de Takahiro NAKAJIMA, Professeur à l’Université de Tôkyô, professeur invité à l'EHESS en mai 2017, dans le cadre du séminaire collectif du Centre de recherches sur le Japon.In the process of modernization in Japan, Confucianism played an important role to educate modern intellectuals. Mishima Chūshū was a founder of Nishōgakusha, in which Confucianism mainly based upon modern Yōmeigaku as well as modern law influenced by French law were taught. It was not an institute of traditional Confucian education, but a modern institute for modern scholarship. Natsume Sōseki who was one of the alumni of Nishōgakusha and became the first national novelist in modern Japan was deeply influenced by Mishima and his teaching of Confucianism. Nakae Chōmin who was a representative Yōmeigaku scholar and a translator of Jean-Jacques Rousseau was also impacted by Mishima. By focusing on the influence to students such as Sōseki and Chōmin, I would like to figure out the overlook of Confucian Education at Nishōgakusha and put it in a wider context of Meiji Education. Then I turn to think of philosophy of Mishima himself, especially focusing on his “doctrine of the unification of moral righteousness and profit” 義利合一論, which supported Japanese capitalism from the ideological point of view in tandem with Shibusawa Eiichi. As a conclusion, I would like to sketch one aspect of Confucian education in Modern Japan not as a simple reactionary conservatism, but as a modern device of Japanese modernity.
