Samurai Wisdom: Lessons from Japan's Warrior Culture - Five Classic Texts on Bushido

ISBN: 0804840083 | 256 Pages | PDF | March 4, 2014 | English | 1.02 MB

The ancient warrior culture of Japan produced a sophisticated martial philosophy that we know today as Bushido-the Way of the Warrior. In Samurai Wisdom, author Thomas Cleary provides five critical new translations of major Japanese works on Bushido.

The writings of the scholar Yamaga Soko and his disciples are among the most lucid expositions we have of the core ideas and philosophy underlying the Samurai's disciplined way of life and outlook. Together they provide an in-depth, practical guide to character building and conduct according to the precepts of Bushido-a code for professional warriors that retains as much relevance in today's world as it had when these works were written 400 years ago.

Yamaga's writings inspired the transformation of the Samurai from a feudal class of warriors under the command of the Shogun to a group of prominent individuals with significant intellectual, political and moral leadership and influence. The works translated in Samurai Wisdom for the very first time are as timeless and essential today as the works of Sun Tzu, Musashi and Clausewitz.

The five Japanese works on Bushido translated in Samurai Wisdom are:The Way of the Knight by Yamaga SokoThe Warrior's Rule by Tsugaru Kodo-shiEssentials of Military Matters compiled by Yamaga TakatsuneThe Education of Warriors by Yamaga SokoPrimer of Martial Education by Yamaga Soko
