Bhikku Buddhadasa - Author

This work brings together in a single volume the translated essays of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu, the major interpreter of Theravada Buddhism in Southeast Asia.

The Body (July 1987)
Toward an Eastern Mind-Body Theory
Yasuo Yuasa - Author
Thomas P. Kasulis - Editor/translator
Shigenori Nagatomo - Translator

This book explores mind-body philosophy from an Asian perspective. It sheds new light on a problem central in modern Western thought. Yuasa shows that Eastern philosophy has generally formulated its view of mind-body unity as an achievement a state to be acquired—rather than as essential or innate. Depending on the individual's own developmental state, the mind-body connection can vary from near dissociation to almost perfect integration....(Read More)

The Logic of Unity
The Logic of Unity (February 1987)
The Discovery of Zero and Emptiness in Prajnaparamita Thought
Hosaku Matsuo - Author
Kenneth K. Inada - Translator

This clear and elegant translation reveals how a modern Japanese thinker dared to show the basic flaw of Western epistemology. In unmasking this limitation, Matsuo presents an Eastern view of a unified experience, and provides an epistemological basis for comparative philosophy.

Matsuo notes that while early Greek thought began by focusing on the right counsel ("Know thyself"), since then Western thought has been influenced by empiricistic a...(Read More)
Jnanagarbha's Commentary on the Distinction Between the Two Truths
Jnanagarbha's Commentary on the Distinction Between the Two Truths (January 1987)
Malcolm D. Eckel - Author

The Madhyamaka School of Indian Buddhist thought has had tremendous influence in the Buddhist world, particularly in Tibet, China and Japan: in the West it has become the subject of intense interest in the fields of comparative religion and philosophy. Many aspects of Madhyamaka thought, however, remain obscure, especially during the period when Buddhist thought was first introduced to Tibet.

Jnanagarbha's Commentary...(Read More)
