授業概要 中世から近世・近代にかけての日本仏教史のいくつかの転換点を概観した後、日本仏教に関する通説を再検討し、さらに、私たちの日本仏教に対する理解がいかに近代的関心に規定されたものであるかを意識化・反省していきます。 This course will consist of seven 100-minute sessions led by Prof. Jacqueline Stone from Princeton University (an American professor of Buddhism and Japanese Religions). It will provide an in-depth introduction to several formative ideas, practices, in the history of Japanese Buddhism from medieval to modern times. We will also reexamine influential scholarly theories and popular images of Japanese Buddhism and consider how modern concerns have shaped our understanding of Buddhism’s past.

1. Introduction: “Old models and new directions in the study of Japanese Buddhism”

 

2. “Can anyone become a buddha?”—Radical teachings of immediate buddhahood in late Heian and medieval Japan; gender and buddhahood; the problem of “original enlightenment”

 

3. “Aspiring to the Pure Land and other death preparations”—Buddhist understandings of the afterlife; how Buddhist monks, rituals, and institutions came to take the lead in death management

 

4. “Rethinking Kamakura Buddhism”— Another look at Hōnen, Nichiren, and the idea of “single practice” (senju); why has the Buddhism of Japan’s Kamakura period been singled out as the most representative?

 

5. “Marginal land or world center? Identifying Japan’s place in the Buddhist cosmos”—Buddhist decline theory; religious responses to the Mongol threat; how rival Buddhist doctrines and practices of the medieval period helped shape Japanese identity

 

6. “The Tokugawa shift: Social order as sacred order”— Problems in the discourse of “Edo Buddhist corruption”; the sacralizing of daily life and new concepts of the afterlife; official and “underground” Buddhism

 

7. “Modern social engagement: Examples from Lotus Sūtra-based Buddhism”—Some alternative Buddhist modernities; how visions of a this-worldly buddha land were assimilated to nation-building, imperialism, and postwar peace efforts
