Daisaku Ikeda's Philosophy of Soka Education in Practice: A Narrative Analysis of Culturally Specific Language
Nagashima, Julie T.
Critical Inquiry in Language Studies, v9 n1-2 p132-151 2012
The author analyzes two teachers' narratives of their understanding and practice of Daisaku Ikeda's (1928-) philosophy of Soka (value-creating) education in relation to narratives of their experiences as students at the Soka schools he founded. These narratives both triangulate an implicit though culturally specific language used to articulate Ikeda's philosophy of Soka education and suggest the participants' teaching embodies his philosophy. (Contains 1 footnote.)
