Yukichi Fukuzawa and the Making of the Modern World - By Alan Macfarlane

9.99

Yukichi Fukuzawa is arguably the greatest Japanese social thinker of the last three centuries. In numerous books, in particular An Outline of a Theory of Civilization (1973) and Autobiography (1972) he outlined his many ideas, not least on the raised status of women.

By setting up bookshops, universities, schools, modern accounting, and modern manufacture he became one of the principal architects of modern Japan, where his image is still on the highest-denomination Japanese banknote. Through his travels to the West and reading of western philosophy he discovered the secret essence of civilization and modernity and explained this to his countrymen and women.
