Bushido encompasses the values and principles that guided the samurai’s way of life. This classic work by Inazo Nitobe explores the moral code of the samurai in feudal Japan and remains a significant text in the realm of Japanese culture and philosophy. He discusses loyalty, honor, self-discipline, and compassion while introducing the reader to Japanese history and philosophy, and shedding light on the social and political landscape of feudal Japan. It’s a fascinating and enlightening read.

O autor toma como missão apresentar o bushido como uma filosofia de vida digna e louvável para leitores não-japoneses, em um formato interessante, por tópicos engrenados, e usando comparações com grandes autores (Shakespeare, Emerson, Nietzsche), ideias e doutrinas (cristianismo) ocidentais. Sua erudição atua, portanto, em favor do convencimento comparativo - tanto quanto aspectos culturais do ocidente, mas de outra forma, a cultura medieval japonesa e a figura do samurai fizeram florescer noções louváveis de conduta e valores sociais. Com isso, claro, é uma visão de época, quando o Bushido já se sobrevive apenas por seu legado indireto, e há uma romantização que se esquece dos problemas sociais para focar na nobreza do indivíduo que constrói sua vida para uma sociabilidade nobre, do guerreiro homem, disciplinado e compenetrado, corajoso mas sóbrio, onde a mulher tem um papel subordinado e a vida vale menos que a honra e o dever. Uma boa leitura para uma visão idealizada.… (mere)

I've always found Japanese history, particularly that of the Samurai, fascinating. But living on the other side of the world in a completely different time in a completely different culture one can never truly know what these people and the time and place they lived in was really like.

What we can do is simply enjoy these snap shots from the past about a culture long gone that we may still have something to learn from.

Originally published in 1900 the setting for this book is between the end of feudalism and the beginning of modern Japan and is, to my mind at least, a wonderful view of the past and what that can possibly mean for the future.

A very interesting book for anyone who enjoys reading and learning about Japan, especially the historical influences of Bushido on modern Japan.

I gave it 4 stars as it does use some very long words and i did find myself using look-up on my Kindle a great deal which does detract from the flow of the book. But it's definitely worth the effort and you do learn a few things along the way.

from the Publisher's Preface

In an effort to foster understanding of the basic scope of the Code of bushido, this book is published. The reader will appreciate learning not just part of the code, but all of it.

In 1899, Inazo Nitobe wrote Bushido, The Soul of Japan, submitting it for publication at the end of that year. A model of Victorian rhetoric, Bushido is also the successful completion of a monumental research task undertaken by th author. Mr. Nitobe searched European archives for original sources and translated much of the material he chose to use from original Japanese texts.

This republication of the work includes his original text because the publishers feel, and the reader will probably concur, it captures the essence of bushido at the turn of the century.

At the beginning of each of Mr. Nitobe's chapters, we have provided a narrative outline of the points he raises in his text. The reader may find referring back to this introductory preface to the chapter helpful to his comprehension of Mr. Nitobe's material.
