Bushido: The Classic Portrait of Samurai Martial Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Justice. Courage. Benevolence. Politeness. Sincerity. Honor. Loyalty.

These are the seven precepts of bushido— the code of the samurai. Together, these seven values create a system of beliefs that is unique to Japanese culture— and is still alive today.

Bushido: The Classic Portrait of Samurai Martial Culture written by Inazo Nitobe, one of Japan's foremost scholars, thoroughly explores each of these values and explains how they differ from their western counterparts. Until you understand the philosophy behind the ethics, you will never fully grasp what it meant to be a samurai—what it meant to have bushido.

First published in 1905 as Bushido: The Soul of Japan, this book is an essential guide to the very essence of samurai and Japanese cultures and represents one of the most popular and authentic depictions of samurai-era philosophy.

Chapters include:

  • Bushido as an Ethical System
  • Sources of Bushido
  • Honor
  • The Education and Training of a Samurai
  • Self-Control
  • The Influence of Bushido
  • The Future of Bushido
  • and more

Synopsis:

A description of the chivalric code of honor and morality of the samurai

Synopsis:

This classic introduction to the chivalric code of honor of the samurai will appeal to a broad range of readers interested in Japanese philosophy, military history, and the samurai era.

Inazo Nitobe, a Japanese philosopher writing in eloquent English, outlines the origins of bushido, or the way of the samurai, and shows how the code permeates traditional Japanese culture.

Nitobe's extensive research results in an eclectic and far-reaching book. He delved into Buddhism, Shintoism, and Confucianism while seeking similarities and contrasts by citing philosophers going back to the Romans, the Greeks and Biblical times.

Originally published 1905, this work is in its 33rd printing with Tuttle Publishing. It represents one of the most popular and authentic depictions of Samurai-era philosophy.
