The Ikeda Center promotes the humanistic education philosophy and model called Soka, or value-creating, education. First developed by Tsunesaburo Makiguchi in Japan in the first half of the 20th century, Soka education resonates both with Buddhist humanism and humanistic education in the tradition of John Dewey. Soka education is an emerging field of study in the United States and abroad. To serve as an introduction and to further research we created an annotated bibiography of sources exploring multiple dimensions of this important educational movement.
