About this Unit
Nihonjinron (the theory of uniqueness of the Japanese) has been discussed for many decades. Some scholars advocate the need for re-examining the concept, while others still hold the view that the Japanese have different sensitivities and values from people with other ethnic backgrounds. This unit aims to develop students' awareness of some of the arguments on this topic by reading relevant texts written by sociologists, anthropologists and novelists. Students will have opportunities to examine, analyse, discuss and evaluate texts from a range of authors. Texts are all written in contemporary Japanese.
