Rashomon is the famous work of Akutagawa Ryunosuke, in which reveals the essence of "evil" that human beings show under the influence of self-interest by the psychological changes of the dismissal of the people in the war era. This article analyzes the self-interested ideas expressed in the article by comparing the original book of Rashomon with its original material of Konjaku Monogatari. Through comparative analysis, the author aims to provide a reference for the complexity of the transformation of good and evil driven by self-interest in the role of debut, hoping that students will have a certain understanding of human nature in the process of learning.
