The volume collects eight essays from Tsunetsugu Muraoka's innovative work, Studies on the History of Japanese Thought. Although not well known outside Japan, Muraoka's analysis of the special characteristics of Shinto belief and morality, especially his comparative study of the ideas and beliefs of principal participants in the Shinto revival of the pre-Meiji era, have made him Japan's most distinguished scholar of Shinto thought. Here his seminal contributions are made available to a wider audience for the first time.
