Ishida Baigan (October 12, 1685 - October 29, 1744) was a Japanese lecturer and philosopher who founded the Shingaku movement (heart learning) which advocated all education include teachings in ethics and morality.[1]

His life work in today's perspective has been summarized with the Confucian idea that a man that cannot control his home cannot control his nation.[citation needed] This idea helped motivate many Japanese reformists fighting for Japanese feminists, human, and people's rights.[citation needed]
