The purpose of our studies was to investigate how societies developed their own distinctive features through various ways of communications available to them in the European history.
The present world has reached a new stage of inter-state and inter-cultural relations due to the development and rapid spread of inter-net communications or computer-based telecommunications on the global basis. On this stage it is impossible that the shape of human relations stays unchanged. From this stand-point each participant started this comparative study, pursuing each one's subject in his/her field, hoping to offer some effective suggestions for a new image of the future society.
The following are the subjects of the participants.
Mariko Sakurai The public sphere and communications in ancient Greece.
Katsumi Fukasawa The transferring movement of men and development of trade in early modern Mediterranean world.
Hiroshi Takayama The interchanges of people in Medieval Kingdom of Sicily.
Takashi Jinno Means and ways for communication in Medieval Europe.
Hirotoshi Hiwaki Social associations in Ancient Rome.
Hideki Yasunari Sociabilite in the Absolute Monarchy of France.
As a result of the three years' studies we could elucidate the close relationship between various ways of communication and formation of societies in Europe.
