How do the Japanese about their native philosophy, Shinto, a decade and a half after its abolishment as a state religion by the Western Allies? // What is its relationship to Buddhism, and particularly to Zen? // How modern can this very ancient creed ever be? // These are some of the questions considered in this study by Dr. Chikao Fujisawa, who specialized in the study of traditional Japanese philosophy and its effect on modern society. // Zen and Shinto is a strong plea to rectify the steps taken to eradicate Shinto, the very substance of Japanese life and thought. At the same time, it offers new insight into the amazing adaptability of the Japanese psyche its depth, vitality and universality and its remarkable capacity to assimilate foreign thought and ideas, and thus contribute to the world s hope for permanent peace. // Dr. Chikao Fujisawa was a Japanese philosopher and historian, and he lectured on the topics at Nihon University. He believed in preserving Japanese customs, and as such he was a strong supporter of reintroducing Shinto and Zen traditions to Japan s youth."
