    Ethics Committees for "High Tech" Innovations in Japan.Rihito Kimura - 1989 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 14 (4):457-464.
    Although ethics committees in Japan have been developing in major medical schools and in some hospitals, their members are usually medical professionals from the same institution. The lack of national legislation for setting up ethics committees permits only a voluntary code of standards for doing clinical research work in high tech medical applications. The author argues for the necessity of more open debate on bioethical issues and proposes the participation of the lay public and bioethicists in Ethics Committees in Japan. (...)

    Internet Contracting and Standard Terms in the Global Electronic Age: Perspectives for Japan.James R. Maxeiner - unknown
    Japanese lawy students how everyday experiences raise significant domestic and international legal questions; that a seemingly technical matter provides an example both of practical application of law internationally and of the benefits that knowledge of foreign law can bring in assisting in understanding and improving domestic law.

    Private Reconstructions of Past Collective Experiences: Technologies of Remembering-Forgetting.Natasha Lushetich - 2015 - Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):105-134.
    This article queries the notion of performance as a sustained act of commemoration, and, thus, implicitly, atonement and forgetting. Laying aside potential considerations of guilt and/or victimisation inherent in the spatio-temporal superimposition of a World War II modality of existence on an affluent, and, by comparison, peaceful part of the world, my investigation focuses on three mutually related areas of performance: the body’s hidden somaticity, the co-becoming of the self and time; and walking as a mnemonic mechanism. Aided by the (...)

    Political Science in Japan: Looking Back and Forward.Takashi Inoguchi - 2010 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 11 (3):291-305.
    The aim of the article is to review Japanese Political Studies in Japan (JPSJ) circa 2000 for the purpose of identifying the trends of JPSJ and gauging its scope, subject areas, and methods. I then identify the key questions asked in JPSJ, i.e. for the third quarter of the last century: (1) What went wrong for Japan in the 1930s and 1940s, which had been seemingly making progress in the scheme of and was with a ? (2) What is the (...)

    Does Japan Really Have Robot Mania? Comparing Attitudes by Implicit and Explicit Measures.Karl F. MacDorman, Sandosh K. Vasudevan & Chin-Chang Ho - 2009 - AI and Society 23 (4):485-510.
    Japan has more robots than any other country with robots contributing to many areas of society, including manufacturing, healthcare, and entertainment. However, few studies have examined Japanese attitudes toward robots, and none has used implicit measures. This study compares attitudes among the faculty of a US and a Japanese university. Although the Japanese faculty reported many more experiences with robots, implicit measures indicated both faculties had more pleasant associations with humans. In addition, although the US faculty reported people were more (...)

    On the Anticipation of Ethical Conflicts Between Humans and Robots in Japanese Mangas.Stefan Krebs - 2006 - International Review of Information Ethics 6:63-68.
    The following contribution examines the influence of mangas and animes on the social perception and cultural understanding of robots in Japan. Part of it is the narrow interaction between pop culture and Japanese robotics: Some examples shall serve to illustrate spill-over effects between popular robot stories and the recent development of robot technologies in Japan. The example of the famous Astro boy comics will be used to help investigate the ethical conflicts between humans and robots thematised in Japanese mangas. With (...)

    Culture and Engineering in the USA and Japan.Leonard H. Lynn - 2003 - AI and Society 17 (3-4):241-255.
    Comparisons of Japan with Western countries have long been used to explore the relationship between technology and culture. In the 1950s and 1960s such work sought to determine if technological imperatives were diminishing cultural differences. In the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s many sought to identify aspects of Japanese culture that might lie at the root of Japan’s technological successes. This article argues that we should now undertake more micro and more systematic comparative studies that are more directly grounded in (...)

    Japanese Women in Science and Technology.Motoko Kuwahara - 2001 - Minerva 39 (2):203-216.
    Women make up about ten per cent of the scientists and engineers in Japan. The aim of this essay is to make clear why, even in the year 2001, there are so few women in these disciplines. I will suggest that the socio-economic structure and gender ideology of Japan since the Second World War is responsible for this shortage which is often erroneously attributed to the cultural traditions of feudal Japan.

    The Japanese Connexion: Engineering in Tokyo, London, and Glasgow at the End of the Nineteenth Century.W. H. Brock - 1981 - British Journal for the History of Science 14 (3):227-244.
    That the export of Scottish engineers and engineering teachers to Japan in the 1870s aided that country's astonishingly rapid process of modernization from a feudal to a capitalist, industrialized society will not occasion surprise or dissent. As the Japan weekly mail editorialized in 1878: In no direction has Japan symbolised her advance towards assimilation of the civilisation of the Western world more emphatically than in that of applied science.

    Women Carrying Water: At the Crossroads of Technology and Critical Theory.Yoko Arisaka - unknown
    In the rapidly changing arena of global politics today, nothing looms larger than the framework technology provides in determining the cultural, political, and economic fate of a people. Japanese philosopher Kiyoshi Miki observed already in the early 1940s that technology is not merely a sophisticated manipulation of tools but that it is fundamentally a “form of action” expressing a cultural and political orientation through the means of material production.1 The power of technology, according to Miki, has to do with its (...)

    Technology From the Standpoint of Sunyata.Alessandro Tomasi - 2008 - Asian Philosophy 18 (3):197 – 212.
    _Keiji Nishitani's critique of technology as a dehumanizing force is objected to by showing that it is possible to establish a relationship with technology characterized by the standpoint of sunyata. In order to support my claim, I offer an interpretation of sunyata as a lived experience in which knowing and being are unified. One method used to experience the identity of knowing and being is the method of negatio negationis. I argue that technology embodies this method, and that thus has (...)

    The Yin‐Yang‐Wu‐Hsing Doctrine in the Textual Tradition of Tokugawa Japanese Agriculture.Wai‐Ming Ng - 1998 - Asian Philosophy 8 (2):119 – 128.
    Japanese agricultural scholarship reached its peak in the Tokugawa period (1603-1868). Most of its representative works were imbued with the Chinese metaphysical doctrine of yin-yang-wu-hsing. They used the ideas of yin-yang, wu-hsing, yun-ch'i, hexagrams, and feng-shui extensively to develop their views and to explain various practices. There were two different attitudes towards Chinese concepts among Tokugawa scholars. Some regarded Chinese ideas as universal principles, and faithfully introduced them to Japan, whereas some were faced with the problem of national identity and (...)

    Enhancement and Desire: Japanese Qualms About Where Biotechnology is Taking Us.William R. LaFleur - 2008 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 36 (1):65-72.
    Japan's Buddhists view bodily enhancement neither negatively in terms of sin nor positively as repairing the world. They prefer prudence, however, due to the fact that human desires will be enflamed by proffered new biotechnologies and ironically increase psychosocial dissatisfaction. In spite of great pressures for bodily enhancements within in East Asian societies, bioethicists issue strong cautions.

Now that the social structure is greatly modernized and a high social functionality has been achieved, robots in the society are taking a popular role for Japanese people. The motivation for such great high-tech developments has to be researched in how human relations work, as well as in the customs and psychology of the (...)

    Technology Transfer and Cultural Exchange: Western Scientists and Engineers Encounter Late Tokugawa and Meiji Japan.G. Gooday & M. Low - unknown

In December 1897 this journal published a photographic montage of "Pioneers of Modem Engineering Education in Japan" (Figure I), showing a selection of the Japanese and Western teachers who had worked to bring (...)
