Critical Commentary

This paper is an introduction to the issue  "Multiple Nature-Cultures, Diverse Anthropologies." By showing the equivocal notion of shizen, Japanese translation for "nature," the paper explores the existence of multiple nature-cultures. 

The special issue was prompted by the 50th Anniversary Conference of the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology (JASCA), held in Chiba, Japan, in May 2014, in conjunction with the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES).
