In Fukuzawa's Spirit of Science
Atsushi Seike (President, Keio University)
Japanese society is currently facing the challenges of overcoming drastic changes to its structure, as well as the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunami of March 11. In a time of such difficulties, we need to be able to correctly understand new situations for ourselves and choose the right course of action. In many respects, the ability to think independently has become more important than ever.
Needless to say, the basis of thinking independently comes from learning. From the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate into the Meiji Era, when Japan was also facing major challenges, the founder of Keio University, Yukichi Fukuzawa, stressed the importance of learning. For Fukuzawa, the essence of learning was jitsugaku, which he took to mean "science": understanding the real truth of things through learning based on empirical evidence.
In this extremely testing time, the mission of Keio University is to reconfirm Fukuzawa's spirit of science and advance learning; and by doing so cultivate people with the ability to think independently. Through the human talents and research achievements it fosters, the university aims to contribute to surmounting the problems that confront Japan, and to solving issues that affect the world today. From this standpoint Keio University is striving to further advance the quality of its education, research and medicine.
