Example text

Perhaps what allowed Leonardo to achieve such freedom was his mastery of the self. 3 This was his first principle, upon which all others were based. Self-mastery allowed him to respond flexibly to any reality. The conventional virtues of the day, such as loyalty and goodness, were of secondary importance to him. He had no qualms, for example, about accepting Francis I’s invitation to go to France, even though this was the king responsible for the downfall of Sforza, his previous patron. Was this a betrayal, a violation of integrity?

Leonardo’s life itself captures the unique freedom and vigour of the Italian Renaissance. Perhaps what allowed Leonardo to achieve such freedom was his mastery of the self. 3 This was his first principle, upon which all others were based. Self-mastery allowed him to respond flexibly to any reality. The conventional virtues of the day, such as loyalty and goodness, were of secondary importance to him. He had no qualms, for example, about accepting Francis I’s invitation to go to France, even though this was the king responsible for the downfall of Sforza, his previous patron.

Young people no longer seek to rule their own destiny. Some individuals, of course, are active, motivated and directed. Japan still has young people who look beyond their own concerns and have both a sense of purpose and a clear perspective of their own society. There are those who work for world peace, and others who are struggling with essential questions about how human beings should live. These youths, who are conspicuously different from their apathetic peers, continue to give me hope for the emergence of a new philosophy that will lead humanity in the direction of the good, the constructive and the creative.
