Zen and Japanese Culture, Suzuki, Daisetz T.
2 Suzuki, Daisetz T. Zen and Japanese Culture
Princeton University Press 1970 0691017700 / 9780691017709 Paperback Very Good 
One of this century's leading works on Zen, this book is a valuable source for those wishing to understand its concepts in the context of Japanese lif e and art. In simple, often poetic, language, Daisetz Suzuki describes what Zen is, how it evolved, and how its emphasis on primitive simplicity and s elf-effacement have helped to shape an aesthetics found throughout Japanese culture. He explores the surprising role of Zen in the philosophy of the s amurai, and subtly portrays the relationship between Zen and swordsmanship, haiku, tea ceremonies, and the Japanese love of nature. Suzuki's contempla tive discussion is enhanced by anecdotes, poetry, and illustrations showing silk screens, calligraphy, and examples of architecture.
