Book News
Carter (philosophy, Kansai Gaidai University) describes the principles of Japanese ethical systems, places them in their social context, and identifies their religious and philosophical underpinnings. He then applies these principles to current social, economic, and environmental problems. Shintism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, and modern Japanese ethics are all considered. The possibility of mutual learning through contact with the cultures of East and West is emphasized. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
