Yanagita Kunio (1872-1962) is widely known as the founder of
folklore studies in Japan, and his achievement in presenting a
systematic framework for the discipline is highly valued amongst
academic writings. However, many of his ideas still need to be
examined, and in recent years there has been a renewal of interest
in his works, especially among scholars of intellectual history.
This re-evaluation of his achievements is generally attributable to
the current view that Yanagita retained an independent position as
an intellectual struggling to solve the various problems that
dominated Japan in the years of great change from Meiji and Taisho
to Showa. First published in 1993. Routledge is an imprint of
Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
