Review "The distinguishing feature of Najita's book is that it provides in convenient form readable English translations of two of Sorai's key works, A Discourse on the Way and The Clarification of Names, together with Addendum to `On the Political Economy', by Sorai's disciple, Dazai Shundai. To those already knowledgeable in these fields, the book may be read with great profit." Theodore McNelly, Perspectives in Political Science "This pithy volume, edited by Tetsuo Najita of the University of Chicago, makes available to Western readers important writings on political theory by Ogyu Sorai (1666-1728)." Theodore Mc Nelly, Perspectives on Political Science "...[readers] should also be grateful that Najita has braved the challenge of making such extremely abstruse texts somewhat more accessible." John A. Tucker, Journal of Japanese Studies "This concise and appealing book presents a mayor [sic] reevaluation of Ogyn Sorai....Najita's study is a trenchment and elegant critique of Maruyama's thesis." Mark Ravina, Journal of Asian History Book Description The modern political consciousness of Japan cannot be understood without reference to the history of the Tokugawa period, the era between 1600 and 1868 that preceded Japan's modern transformation. In this volume Tetsuo Najita introduces the ideas of the leading political thinker of the period, Ogyu Sorai (1666 1728), providing an important insight into the history and politics of contemporary Japan. Sorai's texts are accompanied by a chronology of his life, a glossary, a guide to persons mentioned in the text, and a guide to further reading, as well as Professor Najita's introduction, which puts his work into philosophical and historical context.
