The Rise and Fall of Hope and Change

Takuan Seiyo was born in Communist Eastern Europe and socialized there and then in Switzerland, France and elsewhere. He received his university education and was naturalized in the United States, but interest in some aspects of the Japanese culture took him eventually to Japan, where he now lives. He describes himself as bi-racial, tri-national, quadri-degreed, quinti-lingual and sexto-ethnic. As to religious conviction, he buys directly from the wholesaler while remaining a cultural Christian. Mr. Seiyo’s pen name is both his Japanese nickname that means “Western pickled radish,” and a symbolic way to honor one of his heroes, the 17th century Japanese Zen monk, Takuan Soho.  The Brussels Journal

Takuan Seiyo’s startling, mesmerizing series, From Meccania to Atlantis, directly addresses the topics we grapple with here at the Reb.  You could almost consider it the necessary coursework for full appreciation of what you read here.
