Outline of Lecture Course

*Born in Western Europe, Jurisprudence was completely unfamiliar to East Asian countries such as China, Korea and Japan in the 19th century. However, East Asian countries, threatened by Western colonization in the 19th century, were forced to accept the jurisprudence from Western countries as a part of their modernization. For any country in East Asia, the accept of the unknown discipline of law was a very difficult task. The history in which there were young scholars in East Asian countries who challenged the difficult task of accepting jurisprudence was a starting point for today's East Asian jurisprudence, and a crucial point in considering its history and present. Young scholars in East Asia who challenged the same task at the same time had a common ground in terms of their academic background.It was a rich knowledge of Chinese classics centered on Confucianism.East Asian scholars, using their knowledge of Chinese classics, translated "legal concepts" expressed in European languages one after another by creating a single word combining two Chinese characters. How East Asian law scholars with the common Chinese classic knowledge of the so-called "Kanji cultural region" accepted the study of  Western-Born discipline on law? In this lecture I will consider the individuality and peculiarity of jurisprudence common to East Asia, the universality common to Western jurisprudence, and the relationship (Triade) among the three.

Course Objectives *Students will be necessary to learn the key view points on the accept of jurisprudence in east asia coutries as follow:
