    Course: Tsunesaburo Makiguchi's Educational Philosophy and Practice (2)

    This course introduces candidates to the later educational ideas and practices of Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944), the progenitor of value-creating pedagogy. The course covers the history and context informing his later pedagogy, Buddhist conversion, and death. The course focuses on two of the five periods in the Makiguchi corpus: 1) his major writings on value-creating pedagogy and educational leadership and 2) his writings and activities after his conversion in 1928 to Nichiren Buddhism. The course will address key ideas in the Makiguchi pedagogy such as truth and value, value creation, happiness, empowerment, and faith.
