Perhaps the most important of these features was the concept of immutable laws, accessible to human investigation and understanding, which governed the workings of human society as well as the natural world. Although some Tokugawa writers such as Kaiho Seiryō had begun to give an economic interpretation to the principle (ri) that maintained the harmony of the universe, the idea that the whole process of production and distribution was (in Mill’s words) ‘as much a subject for scientific enquiry as any of the physical laws of nature’ was still an unfamiliar one.

The year after the fall of the shogunate, in revenge for his betrayal of the ideal of ‘expelling the barbarian’, he was assassinated by a conservative extremist. CONCLUSIONS On the eve of its first phase of modern industrial growth, Japanese thought contained no category which corresponded precisely to the twentieth-century notion of economics. Indeed, in Europe itself, the intellectual boundaries that would separate economics from the other social sciences were still being drawn. In Japan, the notion ofkeikoku saimin (administering the nation and relieving the sufferings of the people) placed economic thought firmly within the tradition of Confucian debates on the nature of morality, justice, and social order.

In the economic sphere, Shōnan called for the complete dismantling of the feudal restrictions on occupational mobility and inter-domain trade. He did not, however, espouse a doctrine of laissez-faire, but instead saw the state as playing a central role in promoting economic development. In this respect, his views are reminiscent of the ideas of Satō Nobuhiro. Shōnan’s proposals for government intervention, however, are much more modest than Nobuhiro’s sweeping visions of a controlled economy. The government, states Shōnan (and here he is still thinking in terms of domain rather than national government), should promote new forms of agricultural production by offering loans to farmers.
