In The Japanese Mind, Roger Davies offers Westerners an invaluable key to the unique aspects of Japanese culture. Readers of this book will gain a clear understanding of what makes the Japanese, and their society, tick. Among the topics explored: aimai (ambiguity), amae (dependence upon others' benevolence), amakudari (the nation's descent from heaven), chinmoku (silence in communication), gambari (perseverance), giri (social obligation), haragei (literally, "belly art"; implicit, unspoken communication), kenkyo (the appearance of modesty), sempai-kohai (seniority), wabi-sabi (simplicity and elegance), and zoto (gift giving), as well as discussions of child-rearing, personal space, and the roles of women in Japanese society. It includes discussion topics and questions after each chapter. All in all, this book is an easy-to-use introduction to the distinguishing characteristics of Japanese society; an invaluable resource for anyone—business people, travelers, or students—perfect for course adoption, but also for anyone interested in Japanese culture. Next in this series: Now available separately, Japanese Culture: The Religious and Philosophical Foundations is a fascinating journey through Japan's rich cultural history.

ikigai ist »das, wofür es sich zu leben lohnt« Ob die Obstbauern von Sembikiya, der Keramiker Sokichi Nagae oder der 92-jährige Jiro Ono, der älteste mit drei Michelin-Sternen ausgezeichnete Koch: Sie alle haben ihr ikigai gefunden und damit Sinn und Freude im Leben. Anhand dieser und anderer inspirierender Lebensgeschichten und fundiert durch wissenscha liche Erkenntnisse erklärt der japanische Neurowissenschaftler Ken Mogi die japanische Philosophie, die hilft, Erfüllung, Zufriedenheit und Achtsamkeit im Leben zu finden. Er gewährt zudem tiefe Einblicke in die japanische Kultur, in der das Verständnis von ikigai allgegenwärtig ist. Japaner trachten danach, ihr ikigai zu finden und zu leben – egal, ob in der Karriere, in den Beziehungen zu Freunden und der Familie oder in ihren akribisch gepflegten Hobbys. Dabei ist entscheidend, dass man sein Ziel mit Hingabe verfolgt und das, was man tut, um seiner selbst willen tut. Die Fünf Säulen des ikigai: 1. Klein anfangen 2. Loslassen lernen 3. Harmonie und Nachhaltigkeit leben 4. Die Freude an kleinen Dingen entdecken 5. Im Hier und Jetzt sein
