An accurate, thought provoking translation of original work from
sociologist pioneer Tongo Takebe Today's sociology education
emphasizes multiculturalism, yet most of the views originate from
Judeo-Christian perspectives that can limit insight and
understanding. Japanese Family and Society: Words from Tongo
Takebe, A Meiji Era Sociologist presents a carefully edited,
accurate translation by Teruhito Sako of original work from the
early Japanese sociologist Tongo Takebe. His unique viewpoint sheds
light on both Eastern and Western perspectives used to describe
societal development and a classification system of knowledge. This
easily understandable source retains the essences of this classical
Japanese social theorist's work while giving an excellent overview
of Eastern and Western social theory and philosophy and discussion
of major scientific advances from the earliest eras until 1900.
Japanese Family and Society is a translation of Takebe's General
Sociology: Introduction (1904, Volume 1) and an excerpt from
General Sociology: Social Statistics (1909, Volume 3). In Volume 1,
Takebe reviews the accomplishments of major Eastern and Western
scholars. Systematically, Takebe discusses the major scientific
advances in physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, history,
economics, philosophy, anthropology, political science, and
sociology to develop criteria for a classification system of
knowledge. In the excerpt from Volume 3, Takebe discusses family
relationships. In these translations, Takebe focuses on the
strengths and weaknesses of both Eastern and Western viewpoints of
societal development in which he demonstrates the advantages of
combining these perspectives. Topics in Japanese Family and Society
