Abstract

Japanese Society (Silver Market?): Exceptionalism in Socio-Economic Sense?

What You See is Not What it is in Japan! This question was my Japanese colleagues and informants confronting me, and I concur with them as I completing this brief…. Perhaps this synopsis could help to realize the limited understanding of we have on another Asia society (despite frequent travels and information exchange in the mobile-Internet age), par­ticularly the enigma about Japanese society’s traditionalism embedded into its supra-modernization trajectories of socio-economic development since 1868!

日本社会(银发市场?):社会经济的例外主义?

你所见的并不是真实的日本!这是我提出这问题时,我的日本同事跟消息提供者对我的反驳,而我完成这篇概论后也认同他们的理据……也许这篇概论能帮助我们意识到自己对另一个亚洲社会的认知是如此有限(即使我们经常到日本旅游,而且又身处这信息交流发达的年代),特别是自1868年起,深嵌于社会经济发展超现代化进程中的日本传统主义,对我们来说真的有如谜一样。
