History, Present State and Future Perspectives of European-Japanese Cooperation in Culture, Economy and Science

  • J. Kreiner


Engelbert Kaempfer of Lemgo in Westphalia, Philipp Franz von Siebold of Würzburg, and Erwin von Baelz of Bietigheim in Swabia: three names that come up almost without fail at any official event promoting German-Japanese relations. They personify the history of Euro-Japanese contact and the German part in it, the acquisition of knowledge about Japan by Europeans, the growth of Japanese studies, and the rise of modern natural sciences — particularly medicine — in Japan.
