Moral and Spiritual Cultivation in Japanese Neo-Confucianism

The Life and Thought of Kaibara Ekken, 1630–1714

Written by Mary Evelyn Tucker

Kaibara Ekken (1630–1714) was the focal Neo-Confucian thinker of the early Tokagawa period. He established the importance of Neo-Confucianism in Japan at a time when Buddhism had long been the dominant religious philosophy. This is the first book-length presentation of his thought. It contains a lengthy introduction to Ekken's life, time, and thought, and a careful translation into readable English of Ekken's book, Precepts for Daily Life in Japan (Yamanto Zokkun). (via)
