Reconsidering “Ie”: A History of Houses of “Farmers” in China, Japan and India(2)
What is a house? Is it equal to a family or a relative? What kinds of elements do prescribe the system of Ie, culture or functions? Taking these questions into account, in this lecture, I am going to talk about Ie for Japanese people through a comparison of the history of houses of “farmers” in China, Japan and India. I hope that the participants will reconsider relative, family and Ie by knowing a history of Ie in Japan, which uniquely developed under the influence of Ie in China.
