Abstract: This chapter discusses the possibility of there being different forms of critical theory, by addressing gaps and silences in Western critical theory and by suggesting that in an age of globalization other forms of social theory should be widely accessible to a more universal audience. It takes as its example Japanese social thought, and on this basis shows that there can be different forms of sociology and of social thought based on very different premises from that of Western social science.
