They were defeated not by technology, but by science expressed as the atomic bomb, and power, as in the monstrous increase in energy employed by the Americans. 27 There is a 3 rd point. The Japanese were cut off from the world for the most important period in the history of science. Within the limitations of their lives, their technology was very ef fi cient and appeared to answer problems. This respect for technology, the ability to make other people’s ideas work in their own context, this infertility of invention, has led the Japanese to be called copyists in the 1 st half of the 20 th century and to be feared in the 2nd half as the industrial power which can turn ideas into hardware faster, more economically, and more pro fi tably than anyone else, whether with the robot, the laser, or the chip.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
