Annotation:Henshall discusses the revival of Shintoism and critiques the nationalist agenda underpinning some contemporary brain studies in Japan, one of which asserts that the Japanese brain perceives sounds in nature (e.g., singing insects) as verbal expressions. After demonstrating the basic validity of environmental determinism with geo-climatic examples, Henshall concludes with an outline of Harade Kenichi’s proposal for a comparative study on environmental determinism in Japan and New Zealand.
