Chapter excerpt

The copyright page: illustration: it is not difficult to find many cultures in Asia and the Pacific from anthropologists know, there are many even and on the Pacific island of primitive tribe is very similar to the social structure and living habits of the japanese. Some are similar to those of Malaysia and New Guinea, some similar, some with Polynesian similar. To explore these similarities reflect ancient population migration and communication, it would be interesting to know these, similar culture is valuable to me, but it's not as may have a historical origin. Between them. On the contrary, find the understanding of Japanese life cues from the similarities and differences between what I found, it is because I know these customs are how to play a role in these relatively pure culture. I also know that some of the continent of Asia, Thailand, Burma and Chinese situation, so I can put in Japan and some other belong to a great cultural tradition country comparison. Anthropologists in the study of primitive peoples have repeatedly proved that the great value of this cultural comparison. A tribe of neighboring tribes in the formal practices may be similar to 90%, but it may have been the custom modified, in order to adapt to the unique lifestyle and value system. In this process, it may have to give up some basic things, these things no matter which occupies in the whole proportion is so not worth mentioning, but the development of the tribe of future to a unique direction. An anthropologist, the most useful thing than the research as a whole has some differences between the national many common characteristics. The great difference between anthropologists accustom themselves to their own culture and another at the same time, we must also make their method to refine on, suitable for this special issue. Anthropologists know from experience, in a different culture of people encountered situation, toAnd different tribes and ethnic understanding and disposal of these conditions are very different. In an Arctic village or tropical desert, that blood responsibility or economic exchange tribal system anthropologists encountered, is no matter how bold imagination cannot imagine. So, just to survey the blood relationship or exchange the details of the relationship is not enough, must be what they this configuration generates in the tribal behavior consequence, each generation of tribal people is how from childhood as their ancestors did to inherit the traditional system of habits, this is the most important. The difference and its restriction and consequences of the occupation of attention can be fully applied to the research of japan. As everyone knows, there are cultural differences between the United States and Japan ingrained. Even the folk saying, no matter what we do, they are always with us instead. If researchers only stay in the simple claim that these differences are how strange and eccentric, that thinks this is a can not understand people, and therefore admit the existence of differences, this is dangerous. Anthropologists according to the experience that any kind of weird behavior is understandable. According to the nature of the occupation, sociologists, anthropologists put more diversity as a kind of positive factors and negative factors to be used is not. No other things can cause him to pay close attention to these institutions and national. Tribal anthropologists study way of life, nothing can be considered behoove, so he looks all facts rather than specific facts. In the study of western nation, a no more training in cultural studies will ignore the whole sphere of action. He put so much as behoove, therefore he to judge all accepted a series of daily life trivial habits and home affairs, certainly can't go further. However, when these do not attract sb.'s attention things are projected in the whole nation's screen, their influence is much greater than the diplomats signed a treaty on the future of a nation's influence.
