Historical Who is Who

HIROIKE, Chikuro

1866 - 1938
Japan
PHILOSOPHY, RELIGION

Remarkable polymath, extensively well read across world civilisations generally as well as contemporary western social science. He systematically recorded and reviewed laws and philosophies. He interpreted his own Shinto beliefs in ways which were open to the thinking of others, with built-in caveats against exclusively nationalist preoccupations. He saw education as vital for human development, with ‘Supreme Morality’ as central to it. The University of Reitaku with its Institute of Moralogy are current expressions of this.
