Sample text

In part as a result of its relative intolerance, the “heterodox teaching” (ikyō 異教), as Sekigo called it, appears in his Ethics as the prime religio-philosophical enemy, one to be guarded against if not purged entirely. The main concern of Sekigo’s Ethics is with establishing the right and true meanings of philosophical terms. However, his work is hardly a mere exercise in semantics and philology. Instead Sekigo’s Ethics exemplifies an early-modern form of Confucian political philosophizing, one increasingly apparent in Japan in the seventeenth- and early-eighteenth centuries.

The multifaceted contents of Sekigo’s Ethics reveal that the early-Tokugawa was hardly an age of philosophical sakoku, or closed-mindedness, but rather was one wherein versatile East Asian traditions served as sources for early-modern expressions of Japanese Confucianism. In relation to foreign teachings such as Christianity, Sekigo’s Ethics also reveals that philosophical sakoku was hardly an inconceivably distant development so much as perhaps a nascent process that would ultimately seal receptivity towards Western religio-philosophical culture and eventually challenge even East Asian systems such as Confucianism.
