About this book

 

This book consists of six papers, which let us analogize the paths of ‘social sciences’ spread to East Asia from the Western Europe where social sciences were products of modern academic development. East Asian societies experienced modern Western power encountering the West who were moving eastward. Afterward, East Asia began modernization like the West. Japan was the earliest starter for modernization among three East Asian Countries, after Japan eye-witnessed the defeated Asian giant, China by the Great Britain in the Opium War(1842). Japan who accepted and complemented modern reform like the West through Meiji Restoration put Korea(Chosun) in the international law of nation system by causing an incident, Unyo gun fighting in 1875. Opening the national gate, Korea began modernization under Japanese influence. Three papers of this book are kinds of empirical chapters showing the process of Koreans’ awakening social sciences in the process of reform for modernization. Other two chapters show the case of Japan. Another chapter shows an academic interchange and development between the East and the West.
