  3. Liberated and Lost? A Paradox of Contemporary Urban Community: with a Case Study of London, U.K.

    Morishita, Yoshia
    Contribution towards solidarity has always been one of the main objectives of sociological studies. The idea of community which this paper reflects upon is at the core of this intellectual endeavour. This is because community constitutes the essential and fundamental part of solidarity;the idea itself has been studied extensively in the sociological tradition and thus is not novel, but it has never been rendered obsolete. It is generally agreed that a major challenge for urban areas today is promotion of solidarity within increasing diversity and individualisation. There are growing numbers of diverse activities and measures to this end, which essentially quest for and aim to realise urban...

  4. The Accent System and Phrasal Pitch Features in Middle Korean -Compared with the Accent Systems of Modern Gyeongsang Dialects -

    Lee, Yeonju
    The Daegu dialect in Modern Korean has a pitch accent system 1. In this dialect, all accent patterns can be predicted by the presence or absence of an accent kernel as well as its position. In Middle Korean texts, although the tone of each syllable is marked, only the low-beginning pitch is distinctive. It is a system with a raising kernel that causes the pitch to change on the pitch from low to high. If there are sequences of low pitch, the last one should be distinctive. After the accent kernel the pitch patterns are governed by phrasal prosodic features. This means that the accent patterns...

  5. Endscrapers of the Old Koryak Culture: A Case Study in the Kamchatka and Taigonos Peninsulas

    Takase, Katsunori
    This study purposes to clarify the functions and uses of stone endscrapers of the Old Koryak Culture(ca. the 5th to 17th centuries C.E.) from the northern Kamchatka and Taigonos peninsulas. Through an examination of the “high-power approach (HPA)”of lithic use-wear analysis, it has been found that all of the endscrapers with heavily abraded edges had been used for hide-working,and that there were also traces of hafting,probably into handles made of bone or antler. Furthermore, an interpretative model for estimating the direction of tool movement indicates that scrapers with relatively sharp edge-angle were used in a whittling motion, while scrapers with blunt edge-angle were used in a scraping...

    Sakurai, Yoshihide; Terazawa, Shigenori
    This paper was originally presented at the Beijing Forum 2010, held on November 5th-7th, 2010, at Beijing China, which was sponsored by the Peking University, the Beijing Municipal Commission of Education and the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies.

  7. Uchimura Kanzo on Justification by Faith in His A Study of Romans: A prospect of Semantic Analysis of Romans

    Chiba, Kei
    In this introductory paper on Uchimura Kanzo’s A Study of Romans, I focus on Uchimura’s understanding of faith and justification by faith, within the context of a general application of his methods and doctrines. I also point out a germ of the Second-Reformation in his interpretation of faith,which he was keen to develop throughout his life. Since Paul himself, as I understand him,reached out a hand of reconciliation to Catholicism and Protestantism well before the Reformation in sixteenth century, I demonstrate that Uchimura was compelled by the text itself to this kind of encompassing interpretation. In parallel with introducing Uchimura’s thoughts, I carry out a semantic analysis...
