Description
An introduction to health and healing in classical and medieval Japan. This class will primary focus on ideas about health, dietetics, poisons, and disease. While Taoists focused on achieving personal immortality, the vow of the Bodhisattva compelled Buddhists to focus upon relieving suffering of others. Beginning with the "Ishinpo" by Tamba Yasuyori (984) and continuing through the Kissa Yōjōki (1211) by Myōan Eisai, this class will introduce theories of health, medicine, diagnostics, and materia medica. Class will be recorded
