SDHF Newsletter No.181 KO BUNYU’s Defining History
KO BUN’YU’S DEFINING HISTORY
A macroscopic analysis of the differences among the histories of
East Asian nations: Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea
No.1- Foreword and Table of Contents
October 2, 2017
Ko Bun’yu’s historical perception is unique and macroscopic. Defining History presents his penetrating analysis, rooted in historical philosophy, of the features of and differences among the histories of Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea.
Postwar Japanese history education has been heavily influenced by Russia (the Comintern historical perspective, whose objective is social revolution) and the US (the “IMTFE historical perception”). Since the 1980s the Chinese historical perspective has entered into the picture, with the PRC and Korea forming a chorus whose “message” is transmitted at full volume by gullible media representatives and educators, and used to brainwash our students. Our current reality involves unrelenting efforts on the part of China and Korea to force the correct historical perception (meaning their historical perception) down our throats.
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to extricate ourselves from this deplorable situation has come to us in the form of Ko Bun’yu and his historical perception, which should be disseminated throughout the world. To that end, we would like to invite all citizens of the world to read the English translation of Defining History.
This installment includes the Foreword and the Table of Contents.
