On the Process of Civilisation in Japan: Sociogenetic and Psychogenetic Investigations
A Figuration Sociologist at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, Dr Lau is the author of On the Process of Civilisation in Japan (2022). By employing the works of Norbert Elias in his book, he examines the complex civilising processes found in Japanese society from the 8th century to the 20th century. He will walk us through the micro and macro processes that have shaped the Japanese through 1,300 years of history.
