A classic work on eastern philosophy zen in the art of archery is a charming and deeply illuminating story of one mans experience with zen eugen herrigel a german professor of philosophy in tokyo took up the study of archery as a step toward an understanding of zen buddhism. Zen in the art of archery zen in der kunst des bogenschiessens is a book by german philosophy professor eugen herrigel published in 1948 about his experiences studying kyd a form of japanese archery when he lived in japan in the 1920sit is credited with introducing zen to western audiences in the late 1940s and 1950s. Zen in the art of archery however is the only book which he actually handed out to every member of the advanced class clearly there is something he wants us to know the book revolves around herrigels attempt to understand zen through the practice of kyudo japanese archery. By archery in the traditional sense which he esteems as an art and honours as a national heritage the japanese does not understand a sport but strange as this may sound at first a religious ritual. A short and simple book about how zen masters practice archery and a memoir of the authors archery training in japan become one with the bow let the arrow shoot itself that sort of thing its interesting to read a book about zen when it was still very new in the west it reminded me of an experiment in mindfulness this may sound cheesy but it also reminded me of the jedi in star wars
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
