Makiguchi and Gandhi explores ideas about Japanese educator Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) as examples of inspiration for large mass movements in the 20th century. Based on research done in Japan, India, Hawai'i, and the United Kingdom, this book breaks new ground by examining and theorizing the fate of dissident thinkers and raises the question often asked by both Gandihan and Soka scholars alike- were they truly radical thinkers?

This book fills an existing gap within the practice of global citizenship education by offering Asian perspectives. In this book, Soka or value-creating education developed by the Japanese educators, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and Daisaku Ikeda (b. 1928) is compared to the ideas of the Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948). This study of their respective thoughts and movements has a significant bearing on the three domains of learning within the global citizenship education conceptual dimensions of UNESCO – the cognitive, socio-emotional, and behavioral. This book deftly combines theoretical discussions with themes and suggestions for practice and future research.

This edited volume focuses on the life and work of Makiguchi Tsunesaburo (1871-1944), a Japanese elementary schoolteacher, principal, educational philosopher, author, activist, and Buddhist war resister who has emerged as an important figure in international education. Makiguchi is the progenitor of value-creating (soka) pedagogy that informs practice in the Soka schools network, which includes two universities (in Japan and the U.S.), a women's college (Japan), two secondary schools (Japan), three elementary schools (Brazil and Japan), and six Kindergartens (Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore), as well as one of Japan's largest correspondence education programs. In addition, thousands of educators worldwide incorporate Makiguchi's ideas in their own curriculum and instruction, and Brazil has instituted the Makiguchi in Action Project, which has provided literacy training and teacher development for nearly a million people. This edited volume is the first in the Anglophone literature to theoretically and empirically examine the nature and global application of Makiguchi's influential educational ideas. The book was originally published as a special issue of American Educational Studies.

An ideal secondary school, college, and workshop text on an increasingly important issue, this is a unique workbook exploring the possibility of a new "global ethics" in 20 brief chapters, dealing with such ethical issues as self-realization, altruism, cooperation, community, and ecological integrity. Each chapter consists of eight parts: a concise definition of an ethical principle, a restatement of that definition in more popular terms, an elucidation of the principle with comments and examples, a "philosophic panorama" that synthesizes the views of various thinkers about this principle, excerpts and extrapolations from the writings of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Daisaku Ikeda, a question-posing exercise, a short bibliography, and a list of thinkers who have written on this principle.

This book focuses on why education today is failing the individual and society and what is needed to create a new and compassionate civilization in the world. Soka (the Japanese word for "value creating") education was first developed in early twentieth-century Japan. It asserts that the purpose of education must be the lifelong happiness of the learners - that the happiness of the learner and the peace and prosperity of society are deeply connected.--From book jacket.

What if Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela and Jurgen Habermas had a conversation on what it means to be a human being? This book synthesizes the depiction of human nature in relation to (anti)capitalisms and (anti)narcissisms in the work of Mahatma Gandhi (Moksha), Malcolm X (Islam), Nelson Mandela (Ubuntu), and Jurgen Habermas (Communicative Action/Critical Theory). Understandings of what it means to be a human being and the purpose of life vary from one philosophy to another, and yet have a bearing on contemporary issues. The reader is invited to assess the philosophies with regard to conceptually and life affirming philosophies of human nature when placed in the context of (anti)narcissisms and (anti)capitalisms. Also examined are the theories of education in the works Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, and Jurgen Habermas. To teach toward a fuller and meaningful humanity requires an analysis and understanding of the many traditions that contribute to humankind, including the non-western. The classroom offers unheralded opportunities for students and educators to be knowledgeable about different cultures, peoples, and ways of being. (Anti)Narcissisms and (Anti)Capitalisms will be of interest to researchers, educators, students, peace activists, philosophers of education, and those working in the humanities.
