Body and Mind in Medieval and Pre-modern Japanese Martial Arts

By Willy Pieter, Ph.D.




Body and Mind in Medieval and Pre-modern Japanese Martial Arts

The perception of the human body and mind are culturally different in the East and West. Westerners have a long tradition of dualism, which separate the body and mind, while the Eastern approach has been wholistic. The author discusses scientific and medical histories for insight, particularly Chinese and European influences on Japan.
