內容簡介


法國籍的日本武術大師與武士道專家Pascal Fauliot,透過28個日本傳統故事,展現何謂武士道精神。

武士(Samurai;侍)是19世紀以前日本的某一個社會階級,他們是通曉武術的軍人,也是日本武士道傳統的核心。本書描繪出武士在武學、精神、心理、道德、哲學、藝術、謀略與政治等各方面所應該具備的智慧與知識。這些故事皆來自武士道的黃金時代,展現了貴族的品味、封建時期的美德或是武術的技巧,以及武士對”禪”的洞見等日本傳統文化的精隨。

故事中的角色,有讀者耳熟能詳的日本戰國三傑織田信長、豐臣秀吉、德川家康,也有較不為人所知的劍道大師、浪人與忍者,這些故事講述了戰爭、謀略、忠貞的抉擇、宮廷密謀與復仇,每一個故事要展現的是武士道精神中更深的觀照與更高的美德。

A collection of samurai stories, drawn from traditional sources, of battles, strategy, conflict, and intrigue--featuring some of the greatest warriors and military leaders of the samurai era.

Martial artist and samurai scholar Pascal Fauliot has collected and retold twenty-eight wisdom tales of the samurai era. The tales are set in the golden age of bushido and represent the pinnacle of traditional Japanese culture in which aristocratic tastes, feudal virtues, and martial skills come together with the implacable insights of Zen.

Some of the stories--like "The Samurai and the Zen Cat"--are iconic; others are obscure. They feature notable figures from samurai history and legend: miltary leaders and strategists such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu; sword masters; ronin; the warrior monk Benkei, and the ninja-samurai Kakei Juzo, among many others. These samurai stories are pithy and engaging, and include tales of battle, strategy, loyalty conflicts, court intrigues, breakthroughs in a warrior's development, and vengeance achieved or foregone. Each tale reveals a gesture or an outcome that represents greater insight or higher virtue."
