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.

Daisaku Ikeda (b. 1928) is an international Buddhist leader, peacebuilder, prolific author, and the founder of the secular Soka kindergartens, elementary and secondary schools, women’s college and universities in seven countries across Asia and the Americas. He has emerged as an important educational philosopher and practitioner whose perspectives on dialogue, value-creation (soka), global citizenship, and the deep inner transformation he calls "human revolution" have informed the curriculum and instruction of thousands of teachers not only at the Soka schools, but also at numerous non-Soka schools and universities around the world. This volume brings together, for the first time in English, international scholars’ empirical and theoretical analyses of Ikeda’s contributions to language and education in a global context. This book was awarded the Critics Choice Book Award by the American Educational Studies Association in 2015. This book was originally published as a special issue of Critical Inquiry in Language Studies.

Education for Sustainable Development

Education for Sustainable Development is an emerging field that is being addressed from transdisciplinary and transinstitutional perspectives, forging links between academic and non-academic institutions. It explores sustainable development as a process that embraces environmental issues, poverty, health, security, democracy, gender and human rights. This collection provides multiple perspectives regarding the possibility of creating sustainable education practices that are integrated into and relevant to the needs and practices on a global scale. It also focuses on the failure of traditional education to address the problems of globalization. The articles conceive sustainable development education as focusing on the holistic development of the body and mind, encompassing a wide range of issues. This idea is also central to the Gandhian tradition of life knowledge and Nai Talim (New Education). The uniqueness of this compilation is in the multiple perspectives it provides, establishing workable links between local communities, governments and international organizations that would enable sustainable human development. It is a rich reference resource for those working in the fields of education, economics and development studies.

China now attracts global attention and headlines that are directly proportionate to its increasing economic and geopolitical power. But for several millennia the philosophy that has guided and shaped the soul of China is not modern Communism, or even new forms of capitalism, but rather Confucianism. And one of the most striking phenomena relating to China's ascendancy on the world stage is a burgeoning interest, throughout Asia and beyond, in the humanistic culture and value-system that underlie Chinese politics and finance: particularly the complex, multi-layered and sophisticated thought of Confucius as passed on in the Analects. In this stimulating and wide-ranging conversation, two leading thinkers from the Confucian and Mahayana Buddhist traditions explore the timely relevance of rejuvenated Confucian ethics to some of the most urgent issues in the modern world, including: Sino/Japanese/US relations; the transformation of society through education and dialogue; and the role of world religions in promoting human happiness and flourishing. Assessing fascinating correspondences between the Confucian and Buddhist world-views, and discussing such thinkers as Mencius, Nichiren, Zhang zai, Spinoza, Gandhi, Max Weber, Levinas, Okada Takehiko, Tang Junyi, and Habermas, the interlocutors commit themselves to a view of spirituality and religion that, without blurring cultural difference, is focused above all on the 'universal heart': on a notion of harmony between people and nature that leads finally to peace and to a hopeful future for all humanity. 'Both Buddhism and Confucianism exemplify the praiseworthy philosophy of going beyond the confines of the individual.' - TU 'Fragrant, beautiful gardens are only possible because, blooming in its own individual way, each plant contributes to the weaving of overall harmony.' - IKEDA 'A true philosopher and religious leader does not become bogged down in doctrinal disputes but breaches the walls of convention for the sake of pioneering new modes of thinking and new ways of acting.' - TU 'Secularization has brought humanity many scientific and other blessings. At the same time, it has had a spiritually hollowing effect, depriving people of meaning in life and reasons to live.' - IKEDA 'In simple terms, the Confucian way is a way of learning to be human.' - TU 'Because it reveals its participants in unaccustomed lights, dialogue is spiritually creative. It reveals in a richer, fresher, wider manner paths to follow and ways to live.' - IKEDA
