内容紹介

In The Japanese Mind, Roger Davies offers Westerners an invaluable key to the unique aspects of Japanese culture.

Readers of this book will gain a clear understanding of what really makes the Japanese, and their society, tick. Among the topics explored: aimai (ambiguity), amae (dependence upon others' benevolence), amakudari (the nation's descent from heaven), chinmoku (silence in communication), gambari (perseverence), giri (social obligation), haragei (literally, "belly art"; implicit, unspoken communication), kenkyo (the appearance of modesty), sempai-kohai (seniority), wabi-sabi (simplicity and elegance), and zoto (gift giving), as well as discussions of child-rearing, personal space, and the roles of women in Japanese society. Includes discussion topics and questions after each chapter.

All in all, this book is an easy-to-use introduction to the distinguishing characteristics of Japanese society; an invaluable resource for anyone—business people, travelers, or students—perfect for course adoption, but also for anyone interested in Japanese culture.

Next in this series:
Now available separately, Japanese Culture: The Religious and Philosophical Foundations is a fascinating journey through Japan's rich cultural history.

レビュー

"When I first saw The Japanese Mind, I assumed it would be similar to Takeo Doi's The Anatomy of Dependence. They're actually quite different. Doi's book focuses on the Japanese concept of emotional dependence, but The Japanese Mind gives an on-the-ground view of a wide range of topics in a way that would be more useful to newcomers who are getting established. Doi's book should be on the reading list too, but a little later. All of the essays in The Japanese Mind are excellent. The authors do a great job of representing their country and what they want for it domestically and globally. Students of Japanese studies, as well as casual readers, will learn a lot." — Japan Reference

内容は、甘え、天下り、集団意識、わびさび他日本人のidentityに深く影響しているtopicについて著者の監修のもと、大学の学生がリサーチしたものが、英語で書かれていて、それぞれのtopicの後ろにDiscussion Questionがついています。私の通っている大学で、授業の教科書として使われています。授業では、topicについて学習した後、Discussion Questionについて、海外の方や日本人と話しあいます。そうすると、ひとりでは気が付かなかった、日本人の心の奥にひそんでいる意識、無意識を左右してきた文化が見えてきたりして、とても役に立っています。国際化が進む中で、日本人も自分の文化を説明できる英語力が問われていると思いますが、そういう力をつけたい方はぜひぜひ読んで、周りの人と話し合ってみてください。

I bought this book with the hope of possibly using it in my own classes, but was thoroughly dissapointed with this book that really does the opposite of what it sets out to do. Rather than promoting understanding of Japanese and Japan, it works to uncritically strenghten many of the old "nihonjin" myths, ignoring some of the best more theoretically sound research of more recent years.

A good book overall but doesn't captivate me enough to finish it and want to learn more about the culture.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Excellent Introduction to Japan...and A Godsend for Western Otaku 2014/4/22
投稿者 L. Martin - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Reading manga and watching anime have gotten very popular in the West in recent decades. It's a tribute to the ability of Japanese creators of these forms of graphic entertainment that many of the books and shows are immediately understandable to a Western audience. After considerable exposure to stories based in such a different culture, though, I became increasingly curious about many behaviors of the stories' characters. For a person like me, this book was the PERFECT place to go to find answers to my questions. The book is aimed at westerners who essentially know nothing about Japan, which was definitely me! And it's based on Japanese business students' essays and reports about their experience of various aspects of their own culture (carefully vetted by their professors!) which gives the material a strong sense of immediacy and realism.

The book is organized around a substantial collection of words/concepts that are claimed to be fundamental to Japanese culture and social behavior. With hundreds of anime and manga under my belt, I could see that most of these really were in fact the "bones" of the culture. In almost all cases, this book's presentation of one of its main concepts would set off a cascade of memories in my mind of story events and/or character behaviors I'd experienced. My questions were answered at last.

For me, this book was never less than interesting, and often fascinating. If you have a pre-existing interest in Japan, but no or only limited direct experience of the place, I bet you'll love it too.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Not to technical, but still insightful and interesting. 2016/6/11

Very neat book. Was a little less technical than I expected but not so much so as to not be interesting to read having little prior knowledge about Japanese culture. Some things they mention are obvious but the explanations and further inquiry into the topics are interesting enough. Also some say it just insults the culture but I disagree. It's definitely more focused on part of Japanese culture that are different from Western counterparts and aspects of Japanese culture the essay writers think are problems, but that's just the opinion and doesn't terribly effect the content. Overall if your looking for a causal read that will make you more informed about Japanese culture, this book could definitely be for you.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Surprisingly insightful 2013/3/13
投稿者 BRYCE O PLATT - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This book is ostensibly a textbook for a contemporary Japanese culture class. There are some 28 chapters, each headed by a Japanese concept like sempai/kohai, bushido, amae and so on. There is a description of the concept as the Japanese perceive it followed by a discussion. To end the chapter there are two sets of questions, meant for a class but also very useful to the person just reading the book.

If you are even here, looking at the subject, you already have either an interest or a need to better understand the Japanese way of thinking. For us Westerners, especially parochial Americans like me, many of the commonplace habits of thought and mannerisms of the Japanese only go to underscore how truly different they are as a culture.

And that is what makes the book so interesting and, to a certain extent, exciting.

The book is not wholly received as excellent here and that's OK. My opnion is that the book is indeed worthwhile and offers insights into Japanese thought and culture I was unaware of. Your mileage may vary, but I found this to be a very worthwhile book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Useful for those of us who speak some Japanese, love Japan, and have been to Japan, and will again go to Japan 2013/10/3
投稿者 Duane P Covino - (Amazon.com)

All I can say about this book is that is allows readers to get a much better understanding about how people and organizations relate to one another in CONTEMPORARY Japan. With whatever level of Japanese language fluency I have, and with the presence of (generally younger) English-speaking Nihonjin (Japanese people), I can get around in the big cities. However, the culture of Japan differs significantly from ours, and some cultural practices, cultural faux paus, etc., are not immediately obvious to Westerners, as the Japanese people often prefer to keep silent, not criticize, etc. The only changes I would have made are, where applicable, to increase the extent to which it contrasts present-day Japanese cultural practices with those in earlier times, and to add an explanation for any such changes, if possible. I highly recommend this book.

I really liked the concepts and details entailed in the book. From the beginning to the end, I could not put the book down. It was fascinating to learn thoroughly about Japanese culture. This book is a gift of enlightenment for anyone who enough learning about other cultures, especially the historical culture of Asia. I am Muslim, so it was something new for me to learn about Buddhism and Shintoism, two of Japan's ancient and relative religions.
