1. The purpose of this paper is the precipitation of recognition of disability in pre-modern times. The subject of analysis is a diary from the Edo period, including articles on illness. In the Edo period, interest in health and illness increased, and against this background, information on family illnesses is described. I think that there is a possibility to find out the recognition about disability in it.The subject of analysis is a diary written by a Confucian scholar of the Hiroshima Domain (広島藩)and his wife. Confucian scholars are vassals of their lords and value the survival of their family.Therefore, the ability of the person to continue the family is an important issue. A person who behaves abnormally and is recorded in the diary as a madman is considered incapable of inheriting a family line. Such persons were considered disabled.
In this paper, we consider such a problem by focusing on Rai Sanyo(頼山陽), a child of Rai Shunsui(頼春水).
