Myth of Japanese Uniqueness (Routledge Revivals)

Myth of Japanese Uniqueness (Routledge Revivals)

The e~nihonjinrone(tm) is a body of writing and thought which constitutes a major and highly thought of academic industry in Japan. It analyses the Japanese identity and presupposes that the Japanese differ radically from other people in their make-up. It believes that their uniqueness is due to linguistic, sociological and philosophical differences. First published in 1988, this book is a critical analysis of the thought on which the e~nihonjinrone(tm) is based. Placing particular emphasis upon psychoanalysis, which constitutes the centrepiece of the book, Peter Dale reasons that the e~nihonjinrone(tm) should be treated as a mythological system.
