At the beginning of the 21st century, both Japan and
Germany are challenged to cope with substantial changes without any hope
the rapid economic growth might alleviate the necessary transformations.
Japan, often viewed as being exceptional among industrialized
countriesnot only in cultural traditions but also in modern economic
policies, experiences debates on major issues which are surprisingly
similar to those in Germany: Rapidly growing relevance of new
technologies in all spheres of life, moves towards a knowledge society,
growing ecological problems, ageing population, and unpredictable
dynamics of globalization.
Some authors point out the role of certain values and
socio-political approaches in Japan at a time when the continuity of the
economic and social life is more strongly challenged than ever before
during the last five decades. Others suggest that pressure for global
convergence have dramatic effects in Japan, Germany, and other
countries. Finally, some contributors point out that Japan and Germany
have some elements in common, related to the same kind of problems and
similar ways of coping amidst troubling changes and uncertain
opportunities for a bright future.
