Watsuji Tetsuro's Rinrigaku (literally, the principles that allow us to live in friendly community) has been regarded as the definitive study of Japanese ethics for half a century. In Japan, ethics is the study of human being or ningen. As an ethical being, one negates individuality by abandoning one's independence from others. This selflessness is the true meaning of goodness

Hagakure : the book of the samurai by Tsunetomo Yamamoto ( Book )
9 editions published between 1940 and 1998 in Japanese and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hagakure ("In the Shadow of Leaves") is a manual for the samurai class consisting of a series of short anecdotes and reflections that give both insight and instruction in the philosophy and code of behavior that foster the true spirit of Bushido - the Way of the Warrior. It is not a book of philosophy as most would understand the word; it is a collection of thoughts and sayings recorded over a period of seven years, and as such covers a wide variety of subjects, often in no particular sequence." "The work represents an attitude far removed from our modern pragmatism and materialism. It possesses an intuitive rather than rational appeal in its assertion that Bushido is a Way of Dying, and that only a samurai retainer prepared and willing to die at any moment can be totally true to his lord. While Hagakure was for many years a secret text known only to the warrior vassals of the Nabeshima fief to which the author belonged, it later came to be recognized as a classic exposition of samurai thought and came to influence many subsequent generations of Japanese, among whom Yukio Mishima was a notable example."--BOOK JACKET
