Living and dying with bravery and honor is at the heart of "Hagakure," a series of texts written by an eighteenth-century samurai, Yamamoto Tsunetomo. It is a window into the samurai mind, illuminating the concept of "bushido" (the Way of the Warrior), which dictated how samurai were expected to behave, conduct themselves, live, and die. While Hagakure was for many years a secret text known only to the warrior vassals of the Nabeshima clan to which the author belonged, it later came to be recognized as a classic exposition of samurai thought.
The original "Hagakure" consists of over 1,300 short texts that Tsunetomo dictated to a younger samurai over a seven-year period. William Scott Wilson has selected and translated here three hundred of the most representative of those texts to create an accessible distillation of this guide for samurai. No other translator has so thoroughly and eruditely rendered this text into English.For this edition, Wilson has added a new introduction that casts "Hagakure" in a different light than ever before. Tsunetomo refers to bushido as "the Way of death," a description that has held a morbid fascination for readers over the years. But in Tsunetomo's time, "bushido" was a nuanced concept that related heavily to the Zen concept of "muga," the "death" of the ego. Wilson's revised introduction gives the historical and philosophical background for that more metaphorical reading of "Hagakure," and through this lens, the classic takes on a fresh and nuanced appeal.

Описание: The seminal treatise on the code of the samurai--now available as a Shambhala Pocket Classic. Hagakure is a treatise on the samurai code written by Yamamoto Tsunetomo, an eighteenth-century samurai. It's a guide, organized as a loose collection of thoughts, on how samurai should conduct themselves. This philosophy--bushido, or "the way of the samurai"--is, according to Tsunetomo, essentially a Way of death or dying. This embracing of death with honor and courage is the core theme of Hagakure--and part of its allure. This edition, translated by the esteemed translator William Scott Wilson, is considered the definitive version of this classic. No other translator has so thoroughly and eruditely rendered this text into English. Wilson's introduction casts Hagakure in a different light than ever before. In Tsunetomo's time, the Way of death was a nuanced concept that related heavily to the Zen idea of the death of the ego. Wilson's introduction gives the historical and philosophical background for that more metaphorical reading of Hagakure, and through this lens, the classic takes on a fresh and nuanced appeal.

Описание: It has been predicted that by 2030 the worlds population will be about 1.6 times that of 2004. The energy consumption will increase by 60% by 2030. This book discusses the Wind turbine generation and photovoltaic power generation which are expected to increase ten-fold by 2030, but their combined percentage of the generation will only total 7%. The expectation for nuclear power generation is large, but under present conditions, the amount of natural uranium resources will have a share for only 80 years. Development of the fast breeder reactor is being pushed forward, but it is not expected to be commercial before about 2050. Therefore, it will continue to be necessary to depend on fossil fuel. Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) techniques for thermal power plants will also surely become important.
