a. 87. A summary of Pound’s understanding of the Confucian values that guarantee good government, which includes reference to Nakae Tôju (1608-48, 57, p. 590), the Japanese philosopher most responsible for bringing the neo-Confucian teachings of Wang Yang-ming (1472-1528, Jpn.: Ôyômei) to Japan. According to Terrell (158), citing Achilles Fang, Pound’s knowledge of Nakae came from Carson Chang, who visited Pound at St. Elizabeth’s.
