Professor Paul Axton, of the American Christian College, is again offering a continuing education course that can be taken for credit. The Spring Term begins May 12 and extends through July 14. It consists of a one hour class each Wednesday evening from 8 to 9 pm and is held at the Ibaraki YMCA building in Tsukuba. It is an in-depth study of contemporary Japanese thought at the popular and intellectual levels which accounts for the modern Japanese worldview. Topics include the origins and development of cultural nationalism, Japanese religion and religiosity, the idea and function of knowledge in Japan, the shift in attitudes surrounding returnees and American colleges in Japan, and recent attempts to reform higher education. The cost is 22000 yen per course. To register or for more information, contact Paul Axton at 56-2167 or email axtonpf[at]compuserve.com.
