Charles I. Abramson, Ph.D.
|As part of a continuing effort to expand the information available through the online OSU Psychology Museum, we are proud to present A Brief History of Japanese Psychology. On this site, you will find brief biographies on many great Japanese psychologists, as well as a timeline of Japanese psychology and links to other information on Japanese psychology.
The purpose of this page is not provide a comprehensive overview of Japanese psychology, as there are many excellent books on the subject. Instead, this page should serve as an overview to the area, serving as a starting point for those who wish to explore this topic further.
Several people have contributed to the development of this site. Dr. Charles Abramson led the development of this site, while the information on the Japanese psychologists came from the devoted skills of Yoshiyuki Onuki, who spent many hours translating information into English from the original Japanese texts. Many of those texts and other information were obtained through the work and research of Dr. Tatsuya Sato of Ritsumeikan University. Dr. Caleb Lack designed all the graphics and built the pages for the site.
Special thanks go out to Miyuki Hara, Yoko Hiraoka, and Kota Okahashi for their invaluable assistance with translations. Mr. Ayumu Arakawa also deserves thanks for all of his assistance with this project. If you have any questions about the information on this page, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Abramson at the below address. Thank you for visting!
