Part 2: Argument, Sources, Examples In Part Two Kondo explores the discourse of the ie, which survives extra-legally in Japanese society as a powerful normative force in family life and which is applied equally ready to the workplace: companies are seen as families, even though thanks to the legal postwar dissolution of the ie system they are much less familial than they theoretically were in the Tokugawa period. Even as the confectionery company officers attempted to impart the workplace a familial feel, workers were able to deploy and take advantaged of that same familial discourse to resist their positionings--up to a point.
