From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In this Japanese name, the family name is Inoue.

Inoue Tetsujirō (井上 哲次郎 ?, 1855–1944) was a Japanese philosopher who condemned Christianity as incompatible with Japanese culture and considered its followers "inherently disloyal" to Japan. He compiled A Dictionary of Philosophy (哲学字彙, Tetsugaku jii), which was first published in 1881, again in 1884, and finally in 1912.

He also a member of the International Education Movement. He wrote a commentary on Japan's Imperial Recript on Education, wherein he supported the idea that the Japanese people needed to support the state, and support of the state included the support of imperialism. [Reference: Dummings, William E. Education and Equality in Japan. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ; 1970.] Inoue's support of imperalism established him as opposed to the ideas of other proponents of International Education, such as Shimonaka Yasaburo, Noguchi Entaro, and Izumi Tetsu.
