Abstract

This article aims to investigate the transfer of political concepts from West to East, with particular regard to the East Asian region and specifically Japan in the first two decades of the Meiji era (1868-1912). In the first paragraph, the issue of the transfer and assimilation of Western political concepts to Japan is framed from a perspective that makes particular use of the policy studies in the field of so-called lesson-drawing. The second section introduces some methodological problems directly related to the transferability of political concepts that have traditionally been raised in comparative political research. In the last and most conspicuous part of the article, mainly based the use of the literature in the original language and of primary and secondary sources on the political debate of the Meiji era, the ways in which the Western political ideas and concepts that have transited into modern Japan were translated and assimilated are explored
