  • The thought of the three religions in criticisms of Masuho Zanko, 井関 大介, Annual review of religious studies., (28) 89 - 107,   2010 , Masuho Zanko was a "vulgar" Shintoist active mainly in the first half of the eighteenth century. As he argued that the Japanese must respect Shinto first and foremost of all religions, many contemporary writers naturally criticized him. Through analyzing his works carefully, it is clear that he propagated Shinto not because he thought it is the only true religion but because he thought it the most useful for administration of the nation and for the relief of the people - especially "the foolish people," in his words. Contrary to his apparent absolutism, his ideas of religions (which his critics rejected as being exclusively Shinto)—based on a sort of relativism or pragmatism—indirectly seems to share common ground with his critics. In this paper, through analyzing the rhetoric found in the criticisms of Zanko, I try to examine the extent of his discourse objecting to other religions and consider them something controllable and useful in this period.論文/Articles
  • The view of Ueda Akinari on deities, 井関 大介, Annual review of religious studies., (24) 67 - 92,   2006 , Ueda Akinari, one of the intellectuals in early modern Japan, was well-known for his novel Ugetsu Monogatari. His diction on 'gods (神)'is analyzed in this paper. In this period, while philologically positivistic and emperor-centric 'Shintoism'was born on the one hand, a demysticized world view was shared among the thinkers, on the other. The former would lead to nationalistic Shintoism in modern times, whereas the latter would completely deny the transcendental, such as gods and celestial beings (天). It can be said that both currents, though seemingly at opposite poles, were movements informed by traditional stories of 'gods'in the context of the new situation of the day. Yet Akinari's characteristic feature lies in his own way of grasping 'gods', which differs from both of the aforementioned trends, even though he lived in the midst of the two. The divino-spiritual views of Akinari are mainly explained by analyzing his dialogue with two representatives: Motoori Norinaga, an exponent of the former trend, and Nakai Riken, of the latter. This discussion is to determine where to situate Akinari in the contemporary history of thought and religion.
