The philosophy of Qi : the Record of great doubts by Ekiken Kaibara( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kaibara Ekken (1630-1714) was a prominent Japanese scholar who spread Neo-Confucian ideas and moral teachings throughout Japan. He was also known as the "Aristotle of Japan" for his studies of the natural world. Of his many writings, the Record of Great Doubts is the culmination of a lifetime of seeking a unified view of humans and nature. The text represents one of the central reflections in East Asian thought on the significance of qi (ch'i), the material force coursing through all life, and is available here for the first time in English with a comprehensive introduction situating Ekken within the currents of his time and within the larger debates of Neo-Confucianism in East Asia."--Jacket

"The Onna Daigaku, or the 'Great learning for women', which is the text of this little book, is ... a half-dogmatised precept exclusively intended for women. The author is Kaibara Ekken, the famous moralist of Japan, who flourished about two hundred years ago."--Introduction

Yojokun : life lessons from a samurai by Ekiken Kaibara( Book )

39 editions published between 1713 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ekiken's basic premise is simple: at birth, we are all given, with rare exception, a body meant to last 100 years. How we take care of it mentally, spiritually, and physically determines whether we will live out our life to the fullest, and enjoy it to the limit. The key lies in moderation, controlling our desires, appreciating the right things, and regulating the life force within. With copious notes based on the Chinese classics, his medical practice, extensive travel, and life all around him, the samurai doctor slowly unveils his Way of Nurturing Life, a method surprisingly intuitive and startlingly appropriate even today, nearly 300 years after it was first written. Translator William Scott Wilson notes Ekiken's relevance for the twenty-first century: "The Yojokun is not just a quaint vestige of Orientalia, but a living guide to a traditional Way to live and maintain a balanced health. If we do not immediately understand some of its more exotic prescripts, it may be wiser not to dismiss them outright, but to approach the work as Ekiken himself might have: with humility, curiosity, respect, and imagination."--Publisher
