In the course in Literature at Tokio University which corresponds to the courses in liberal arts in American colleges, the doctrines of Buddha constitute part of the prescribed studies. Since the revolution, however, few of the students has accepted the Buddhist doctrines, and most of them attend the lectures and recitations solely because they are compelled to. Nine-tenths of the students are radical freethinkers, and nearly one-tenth Christians. The works of Mill, Darwin, Buckle, Lecky, Huxley and Herbert Spencer are far better known than the Bible or the Buddhist works. [Cornell Sun.
