Body and mind in Japanese culture

This presentation considers Japan’s ideological history and its expression in martial arts. Thus Japan’s creative reworkings of Shintō, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Western thought are the primary themes. The historical development of these ideas will be examined. This presentation will consider examples of how these ideas are manifest in Japanese arts and culture, and how Japan’s past aids to explain Japan’s present. The martial art of AIkido will then be used as one example of the conncetion of mind and body in Japan.
