Book by Lerner Bernice Nakayama Osamu


"Scholars from two universities, one in Boston USA and the other Kashiwa Japan, engage in paired reflections on nine virtues: courage, justice, benevolence, gratitude, wisdom, reflection, respect, responsibility and temperance. Characteristic differences of emphasis emerge, but in a spirit of complementarity not conflict. The substance of each virtue is vividly conjured in story-mythological, historical or biographical. The coherence of the end result is the more remarkable given twelve contributors. They explore the grounding of our shared humanity with its respective debt to Graeco-Roman and Judaeo-Christian sources or to Buddhist, Confucian and Shinto ones. There is challenge here for both education and living." -Dr. Brian Gates, Emeritus Professor of Religious & Moral Education, University of Cumbria "This book is testament to the scholarship, excellence and collaborative spirit of the authors. I recommend it to those who wish to improve the quality of their lives and are willing to commit to the practice of kindness in their thoughts and courage in their actions. My hope is that this book will become a widely acknowledged, international reference used to educate and influence generations of youth. They need to appreciate that true improvement is the ethical implementation of knowledge, and differs from the misused term of 'progress' which is often the installation of technical advances for short term institutional profitability." -Professor Thomas Martin, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), Australian Catholic University "In this unique and splendid contribution to cross-cultural understanding, nine virtuesucourage, justice, benevolence, gratitude, wisdom, reflection, respect, responsibility, and temperance-are reflected upon by scholars from Reitaku University and Boston University. Preceded by two excellent introductory essays and followed by an insightful conclusion, the nine chapters each treat a virtue, first from an Eastern and then a Western perspective. The Japanese writers emphasize the relational self, moral causality and one's responsibility to the community; the American writers, the autonomous self, pragmatic altruism and one's own character development. The result of the dialogical collaboration is a shared vision and deeper awareness of the rich network of interdependence that links us with others and with nature; and that reminds us of our moral duty to act for the common good." -Michael Palencia-Roth Trowbridge Scholar in Literary Studies, Emeritus Professor of Comparative & World Literature, The University of Illinois "This book is a clever project to examine a set of core virtues from the perspective of two cultures: America and Japan. The focus on core virtues itself is important globally as this is a common denominator in most attempts to nurture moral growth. And the contrast of two very different cultural approaches is a unique contribution to deeper understanding of the issue of virtue development in general and the two cultures in particular. I particularly learned from opening and closing sections by Nakayama and Lickona." -Marvin W. Berkowitz, Ph.D., Sanford N. McDonnell Professor of Character Education, Center for Character and Citizenship
