ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Eugen Herrigel (20 March 1884 in Lichtenau, Baden-W├╝rttemberg - 18 April 1955 in Partenkirchen, Bavaria) was a German philosopher who taught philosophy at Tohoku Imperial University in Sendai, Japan, from 1924-1929 and introduced Zen to large parts of Europe through his writings. While living in Japan from 1924 to 1929, he studied kyudo, traditional Japanese archery, under Awa Kenz├┤ (1880-1939), a prominent master of the art, in the hope of furthering his understanding of Zen. In July 1929 he returned to Germany and was given a chair for philosophy at the University of Erlangen. - Wikipedia
