Chapter 3, “Warp and Woof: The New Buddhist Discovery of Society,” provides a detailed examination of the Warp and Woof Society (Keiikai 経‎緯‎會‎) and the New Buddhist Fellowship (Shin Bukkyō Dōshikai 新‎仏‎教‎同‎志‎会‎) of the 1890s and early 1900s, as embodied and expressed in the life and work of the New Buddhists Furukawa Rōsen, Sakaino Kōyō, Takashima Beihō, Sugimura Sojinkan and Watanabe Kaikyoku. With the exception of Furukawa, who died the year before it was founded, all of these figures contributed to the journal Shin bukkyō新‎仏‎教‎, published by the New Buddhist Fellowship from 1900 through 1915. In particular, the chapter focuses on the turn within New Buddhism to society as a locus for Buddhist practice and awakening. The chapter concludes with an overview of institutional and lay Buddhism during the last two decades of Meiji.
