Description
The West had Chivalry and Japan had Bushido--or did it? This class will be a brief introduction to the actual ethos of the Japanese warrior, including a discussion on how a romanticized version of it was created in the 18th centuries and refined further in the 20th. We'll look at how to get away from the historiography of the last century and examine the actual codes that the warrior class of Japan followed in our time period.
