What is the point of “studying”?
This is something that everyone has asked themselves at some point in their lives.
150 years ago, Fukuzawa Yukichi published his thesis on the subject, An Encouragement of Learning.
In the midst of the rapid incorporation of western ideas and culture during the Meiji period, he promoted the importance of “learning” as a way to overcome national challenges.
Even in our current era, we face dilemmas like poverty, war, and disease; issues that cannot be solved with simple solutions.
However, An Encouragement of Learning provides fundamental insights for how people can approach their lives.
It contains timeless signposts to guide us on our chosen paths.
“Heaven does not create one person above or below another.”
Following this logic, there must be clues to ways that people can survive and thrive in the modern world.
“Why do we study?” The answers may lie right in front of you.
Perhaps this book can encourage you to learn today.

An Encouragement of Learning
The first installment of Gakumon no susume (An Encouragement of Learning) was written by Fukuzawa Yukichi and published in 1872. By 1876, a total of 17 pamphlets in this series had been released. These were then compiled into a single volume in 1880. Fukuzawa dedicated this first installment to the people of his hometown, Nakatsu, Oita Prefecture, as they were establishing the “Nakatsu City School.”
An Encouragement of Learning advocates for fundamental attitudes people should hold as they navigate life.
Its main message has remained just as relevant as when it was written, and is a constant source of valuable insights and advice for everyone living today.
