Message to students

It is often said that, "Whatever it is that you do, you should begin by setting a goal." This is very true. Whether it is target shooting or any other sports event, your goal is crystal clear and you simply aim to achieve it. However, there are no such clear goals for research work, nor are they as easily set. Being excessively aware of a goal can do harm; especially the methodology of gathering data for a goal embedded with a presumptive conclusion, singling out data which supports that goal, and building up an argument on such data, a process which can actually do more harm than good. It is natural that, if students are interested strongly enough in the contemporary society and culture that is alive and moving around them, they will surely encounter various issues. Whether they are diverse, deeply internal, global, or specific, we will learn ways to pursue them broadly and deeply, and also dynamically and historically. As we constantly engage ourselves in intellectual work to discover truth through a great deal of trial and error, is it not true that we may begin to see our true goals? I greatly look forward to working with students in this process of establishing their goals.

近年,東亞學界十分關注亞洲型國家和社會結構、文化關係的理論摸索,對在全球化經濟浪潮影響下激變的東亞新關係,進行了廣泛的合作研究。另一方面,植根于亞洲歷史中的地域性矛盾、再生的“民族主義”、政治和經濟的非對稱性、廣範圍的環境破壞等深刻課題,依然大量存在。中國、朝鮮半島、東南亞諸囯今後何去何從,採取何種對外方針,如何解決資源、環境的問題,對日本的將來可能產生難以估量的影響。這種形勢,必然要求我們在全球視野下綜合人文、社會、自然諸學科的知識系統,相互合作,從學術的角度客觀探討和解析東亞以及東南亞的相關課題。各位同學如果關心自己的時代以及人類的未來,就必定遭遇紛繁複雜的諸多問題。近代以來,東西方世界都經歷了前所未有的劇變,在政治形態、經濟結構和社會的各個層面產生根本變革的同時,人類更經歷了他自身在觀念、思想、信仰以及知識系統和理論内部結構的巨大顛覆與更生。我所研究的領域,正是關注人自身的這種變容及其走向,力圖從思想、知識、信仰與制度、社會的多重互動關係中考察東亞近代賴以解決自身問題的知識根底和思想模式是否充分有效,並將今日全球化浪潮下的新型亞洲關係抽象為一個超越一時一地的思想文化課題,對其中僅僅通過直接現實的表層變化及現象調查所難以發現的深層問題,進行動態地、歷史地考察和把握。
