The book explores an interesting theory the term of amae and its impact upon the Japanese individual and social psyche but in my opinion the arguments are rather poor and undeveloped It made me think of the saying when all you have is a hammer everything around you seems like nails

READ & DOWNLOAD Ú 「甘え」の構造 Takeo Doi à 1 READ & DOWNLOAD A classic study of the Japanese psyche a starting point for a true understanding Japanese behaviorThe discovery that a major concept of human feeling easily expressed in everyday Japanese totally resisted translation into a Western language led Dr Takeo Doi to explore and define an area of the psyche which has previously received little attention The resulting essay The Anatomy of Dependence is one of the most penetrating analyses of the Japanese mind ever written as well as an important original contribution to psychology which transcends the boundarie. Those of you who are paying attention might recall that I have reviewed another book by Takeo Doi The Anatomy of Self which deals with the problem of how one can live in a society where the primary drive of everyone is to return to the state of perfect peace and dependence that we knew as an infant at our mother s breast In Japanese this emotion is called amae and it s one of those great words that can only be imperfectly translated The image of the baby at the breast is Doi s way of describing itHe believes that while the feeling is one common to all humans the Japanese are the only people who have an everyday word to describe it and a whole host of words to describe what happens when amae goes wrong This being the case he believes that the Japanese are somehow special in being the only culture in the world that holds amae as a core element in their national psychologyIn his opinion to understand Japanese psychology and the way Japanese people behave with one another you have to understand amae and that s a very long struggleThe verb form amaeru is defined in my dictionary as to fawn to take advantage of to depend on which of course is kind of misleading To many Westerners Americans especially there s very little in that definition that is positive We are brought up to deny amae and so strike out to become independent individual and beholden to no one To the Japanese though it is a way of gauging relationships with other people and the level to which one can amaeru with another person defines everything about their relationship How they will talk how they ll act how much of their true opinions they ll let out and how much they ll concealDoi takes amae to be his central pillar of his own practice in psychology and so his perspective on all other concepts of relationship is defined by his views on amaeAs you can imagine it s not the easiest book in the world to get throughWhile the book is written for popular consumption there are a few places where it would have helped to have known some basics in psychological terminology But if you re very familiar with life in Japan you can see that he certainly has a point For example he views the Emperor as the embodiment of amae in Japan He is in theory the most important person in the country and yet he is the most helpless Everything is done for him by assistants or staff Every dinner is chosen by dietitians every moment of a traveling schedule every wardrobe decision every word of his speeches is prepared for himIn other words he is like a baby comfortable in the knowledge that no matter what he will be taken care of he will be loved His life is steeped in amae and if he ever had to rely on his own resources he would probably be totally lost And yet this is the ideal to which all Japanese aspire It is the knowledge that they cannot achieve it that brings about the elaborate social constructs that keep everyone from going nuts from their unfulfilled desire to be taken care ofA thought occurs to me as I write this too about the Two PrincessesPrincess Kiko who had a baby boy last week is very popular with the Japanese people Not only because she had a boy but because she does everything that a princess is expected to do She smiles she waves she is sweet and pleasant and kind without a bad word to anybody or near as I can tell any ambition but to be a good Princess In other words she allows herself to be loved and indulged by the people of Japan She amaerusPrincess Masako on the other hand is a little less popular and not only because she had a little girl She is independent having spent time living and studying in the US and working on diplomatic missions for the Japanese Foreign Ministry She has has a lot of trouble fitting into the Princess role leaving behind a life of her own and entering one where she is no longer in control of her own existence Currently she s keeping a very low profile due to anxiety and nervous exhaustion In other words she doesn t amaeru she doesn t want to be taken care of or doted upon but she really has no choice in the matter and so the conflict is driving her slowly nutsAnyway enough armchair psychology It s a fascinating book for anyone interested in comparative psychology or Japanese society Take a look

The book that got me into Takeo Doi and by extension cross cultural takes on clinical psychology Doi explores the Japanese principle of amae something universal to all human culture and experience but only given an explicit name in Japanese language Amae is related to intimate relationships we form with others and how those relationships shape our behavior and so our total psyches Doi draws on his own experiences in foreign cultures to define and explain what exactly is meant by the concept in order to use it as one of the fundamentals of a new kind of psychology and from there a psychotherapy A must read for those interested in sociocultural psychology especially cross cultural psychotherapy
