The purpose of this project is to examine the relationship between the "Japanese spirit" and "Yangming Learning" in Yasuoka Masahiro’s thoughts. This study focuses on the following two major axes: First, Yasuoka 's "Japanese spiritual theory" is often discussed in the context of the larger pattern of "Eastern(T?y?，) ethics", so it is necessary to clarify Yasuoka 's “T?y?” The relationship between the meaning of ethics and the "Japanese spirit." This study finds that Yasuoka holds (1) " T?y? 's pursuit of absolute universal ideals"; (2) " T?y? studies must be a Sino-Japanese connection theory", but this theory of joint cooperation is based on anti-communism. (3) " T?y? must return to the pure spirit of rural learning," so this is the purpose of his establishment of the Japanese Farmers School and the Golden Rooster Academy. The second is to analyze the relationship between Yasuoka 's "Japanese spirit" and "Yangming Learning". This study finds that Yasuoka focuses on the following three characteristics: (1) Japanese nationality is very suitable for Yangming Learning: Yasuoka believes that Yangming's fall in China and its prosperity in Japan is evident. (2) Yangming Learning was alive and inhabited in Japan: So in the history of Edo in Japan, such as Nakae Toju, Kumazawa Banzan, Yamada Hokoku, and Kawai Tsukunosuke, these Yangming Learning scholars, will live and use Yangming Learning’s politics for their Political utility. (3) The role played by Yangming Learning in Japan is "restoration" rather than "revolution." This research has already written a draft entitled "The Relationship between Japanese Spiritual Theory and Yangming Learning of Yasuoka Masahiro", which is revised in the near future, submitted to a high-quality journal, or included in the Yangming Learning series of books I studied.
