◆Publishing KOIZUMI Yoshiyuki’s Ethics (Book Guide Series: Basic 30)

We just published Prof. KOIZUMI’s Ethics (It has been on sale from the end of October, 2010). This book was published as one of the first stage books of book guide series that we newly launched. This book was published together with MARUKAWA Tetsushi’s Theory of East Asia and NAKAYAMA Yasuo’s Philosophy of Science.

In this series each author selects 30 important books or basic ones per academic field in one book and explains the contents of each book chosen in about 4,000 Japanese letters. For more details, such as the table of contents of the series and future lineups, please refer to the Jimbun Shoin's website.

In launching this book series, we firstly aimed at making these new guides of intelligence exciting and thrilling in which the interpreters' (that is, authors') personalities are well reflected. Its promotional message states "New guides of intelligence for considering the 'present'! 30 important books were selected per academic field and reasons of its selection are explained from the actual viewpoint. These are brand new guides of intelligence highlighting the authors' personalities".

Publishing a "book guide" itself is an acceptable safe project. However, when we daringly undertake the project in a way of a series, we should have the solid intention in order to counter its acceptablity. You might understand our aims from the reasons why we at first choose Prof. KOIZUMI’s book.

It is up to readers to evaluate how our intentions is realized. We are happy if you have a look at this book in book stores.
