"The Seven Professors affair" is famous as the pro-war movement of Tokyo university professors before the Russo-Japanese War. Their movement is likely to be criticized as irresponsible and silly. However the overview of the affair and their intention are not well known. In this paper, to explain the background and the overview of the affair, I will examine the public opinion to the affair, through newspaper and magazine articles at that time as well as reminiscences of those who involved. Their movement came to the first case of consumption of the intellectuals in Japan.
