About the Book



Translation of: Zen in der Kunst des Bogenschiessens.



Book Synopsis



A classic work on Eastern philosophy, and a charming, deeply illuminating story of one man's experience with Zen.

Eugen Herrigel, a German professor of Philosophy in Tokyo, took up the study of archery as a step toward an understanding of Zen Buddhism. This book is the account of the six years he spent as a student of one of Japan's great kyudo (archery) masters, and of how he gradually overcame his initial inhibitions and began to feel his way toward new truths and ways of seeing.



Review Quotes




"In this wonderful . . . and illuminating account . . . the Western reader will find a more familiar manner of dealing with what very often must seem to be a strange and somewhat unapproachable Eastern experience." --from the introduction by Daisetz T. Suzuki



About the Author
