The Asia Pacific Journal has recently published a series of three articles by Daizen Brian Victoria on the subject of D.T. Suzuki and the Nazis. This is the latest contribution by Victoria in his long-term research on the relationship between Zen Buddhism and war in Japan.
Over at the Sweeping Zen site, there’s an interesting (and robust) discussion going on the subject here: “An Article Concerning “D. T. Suzuki and the Nazis”“. As can be seen from the heated nature of the discussion it’s an extremely controversial subject. It’s thought-provoking stuff and well worth investigating.
