Summary
  • "The self serves as a universally available, effective, and indispensable filter for making sense of the chaos of the world. In her latest book, Takie Lebra attempts a new understanding of the Japanese self through her unique use of cultural logic."
  • "The book expands the discussion in relation to larger constructions of the inner and cosmological self. Unlike the social self, which views itself in relation to the "other," the inner layer involves a reflexivity in which self communicates with self. While the social self engages in dialogue or trialogue, the inner self communicates through monologue or soliloquy. The cosmological layer, which centers around transcendental beliefs and fantasies, is examined and the analysis supplemented with comments on aesthetics. Throughout, Lebra applies her methodology to dozens of Japanese examples and makes relevant comparisons with North American culture and notions of self
  • Finally, she provides an analysis of critiques of Nihonjinron to reinforce the relevancy of Japanese studies." "This volume will prove highly instructive to specialists and non-specialists of Japanese studies in a range of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, and social psychology."--Jacket
