Tsunesaburo Makiguchi: Introduction to the Man, His Ideas, and the Special Issue
Goulah, Jason; Gebert, Andrew
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v45 n2 p115-132 Mar 2009
This article introduces the life and work of Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944), a Japanese teacher, school principal, educational philosopher, author, activist, and Buddhist war resister. Quite likely, readers are unfamiliar with Tsunesaburo Makiguchi or his ideas. His writings on education covered three main areas, human geography, community studies, and value-creating pedagogy. The final period of his life, following his 1928 conversion to the school of Buddhism propounded by the medieval reformer Nichiren (1222-1281), reflects the work of integrating the insights and worldview of Buddhism into his standing educational commitments. (Contains 5 notes.)
