Well Educated Confucian Thinker Nishikawa Joken (1648–1724) Tells about Poorly Educated Buddhists Outstanding Confucian thinker Nishikawa Joken (1648–1724) wrote many treaties. The most popular of them was «Choninbukuro». He thought that Buddhist teaching was wrong and truly educated man had to reject it. At the same time he argued that faith in paradise and hell was instrumental for commoners to follow true social behavior and in that sense it was helpful in implementing social order in Japan.
