Abstract

Among the scholars who studied Confucianism in Edo period Japan there were those who devoted their time particularly to the study of Confucian ethics. Itô Jinsai is most often considered as an intermediary between the ideas of the Zhu Xi School, of which he was a critic, and the Sorai School, which in many ways he helped inspire, but also as a proper Confucian ethicist. As interpreting Confucian ethics within the field of comparative philosophy has come a long way recently, I would like to examine Jinsai’s project through the prism of some of the newest proposed readings.

要旨

江戸時代の日本において儒学を研究した学者の中には、特に儒学道徳に多くの時間を割いた者がいる。なかでも伊藤仁斎は、朱子学を批判し、徂徠学派に影響を与えながらも、両者の思想を結びつけた者として有名である。彼は本義的に儒学道徳者であった。昨今、比較哲学の分野における儒学道徳の研究も少なからず行われるようになってきたが、本論文は最新の研究書を参照しながら伊藤仁斎の思想を考察する。
