授業の目的及び概要 この授業は英語のみで行われる。授業では、日本人の思想と文化の根底にあるそのメンタリティについての理解を深める。今日みられる日本の伝統、習慣、慣習、風習、習俗等の現象のなかには、本来の意味や意義を離れ、形だけが継承されているものがあることを踏まえ、授業ではそれら現象のなかに秘められた、日本人のメンタリティの根源を明らかにする。さらに、異文化理解の観点から、世界からみた日本社会の特徴について理解し、英語で説明できる能力を修得する。就業力育成の観点から論理的思考力や幅広い視野を育みます。

この科目の履修にあたって Aiming at developing a further understanding of the Japanese society, this course examines contemporary cultural and social issues in Japan from the standpoint of the people who have been exposed to various forms of social exclusion e.g. poverty and discrimination. The lecturer will attempt to clarify how structural elements like economic tendencies, cultural ideologies and political decision-making interact with the social fabric and daily life in Japan. Fieldwork will also be included in order to critically review the media reports and to become familiar with the present situation in Osaka.
