Abstract: Tachikawa showed that a left perfect ring R is an injective cogenerator in the category of all right R-modules iff there holds: (right FPF) every finitely generated faithful right module generates $\bmod {\text {-}}R$. In this paper, we simplify Tachikawa’s long and difficult proof by first obtaining some new structure theorems for a general semiperfect right FPF ring R; the most important are: R is a direct sum of uniform right ideals, and every nonzero right ideal of the basic ring ${R_0}$ of R contains a nonzero ideal of ${R_0}$. Furthermore, if the Jacobson radical rad R is nil, then R is right self-injective. Tachikawa’s theorem is an immediate consequence. We also generalize a theorem of Osofsky on perfect PF rings to FPF rings.
