十七条憲法の憲法学的重要性について Importance of the 17 Articles Constitution in constitutional studies
The 17 Articles Constitution by established Prince Shotoku has been neglected as one of no value by many constitutionalists of Japan. But such a tendancy is not right. In this essay, I emphasized (1) importance as the first written constitution of Japan, (2) importance as a national essential polity of Japan, (3) importance as the first written constitution all the world, (4) importance as a useful constitution for the future on this subject.
