Chapter Summary

The font matter section of this book The Orientation of Science and Technology: A Japanese View contains a table of contents, a preface, a foreword by Tessa Morris-Suzuki and an introduction. One of the most distinguished science historians of the twentieth century, Shigeru Nakayama has been at the forefront of redirecting or 're-orientating' conventional East Asian science and technology, arguing, like Joseph Needham, that the 'orientation of science' refers not only to the direction of science but also implies a turning to Eastern science. In recent times, he has been arguing for implementation of a 'Service Science', which is linked to the rights and needs of mankind.

Keywords: Eastern science; Japan; Shigeru Nakayama
