|その他のタイトル: ||The Statistical Thinking of Rikitaro Fujisawa and his Contribution to Statistics in Japan|
|著者: ||上藤, 一郎|
|抄録: ||The main purpose of this paper is to clarify three problems concerning Rikitaro Fujisawa's thinking about statistics.
Fujisawa was a professor of mathematics in the Department of Mathematics in the Faculty of Sciences at Tokyo Imperial University, so he was a mathematician, not a statistician. Nevertheless, he was in charge of two lectures on statistics. The first lecture was in the 1896 year in the Department of Politics, the College of Law, Imperial University (formerly Tokyo Imperial University). A lecture on statistics by a mathematician was rare at this time, because statistics was regarded as a science of the state (Staatswissenschaft). The second lecture was entitled "Probability and Statistics," and it took place in the 1908 year in the Department of Mathematics at Tokyo Imperial University.
The three problems addressed in this paper are as follows. First, I try to show why Fujisawa was in charge of two lectures on statistics. Second, I describe his thinking on statistics from the contents of his lectures, then I clarify the change in his thinking on this subject from 1896 year to 1908. Finally, I try to evaluate the impact of his thinking on statistics through a "mathematization of statistics," my special term for analyzing the historical process of statistics.|
