The aim of Sirai's essay, “The Jomon style”, was not to admire the Jomon culture, but to consider how to grab the inner potential of the object without being misled by its external form. His theory of tradition subsequently developed into the “theory of expansive tradition”. He objected to confining the argument over tradition to Japan and set out to consider the concept from a universal point of view. He gave shape to it and proposed a new concept, the “Eurasian style”.
