Description

One of Western Buddhism's most sophisticated thinkers on one of Buddhism's most central topics. The concept of nonduality lies at the very heart of Mahayana Buddhism. In the West, it's usually associated with various kinds of absolute idealism in the West, or mystical traditions in the East—and as a result, many modernphilosophers are poorly informed on the topic. Increasingly, however, nonduality is finding its way into Western philosophical debates. In this "scholarly but leisurely and very readable" (Spectrum Review) analysis of the philosophies of nondualism of (Hindu) Vedanta, Mahayana Buddhism, and Taoism, renowned thinker David R. Loy extracts what he calls "a core doctrine" of nonduality. Loy clarifies this easily misunderstood topic with thorough, subtle, and understandable analysis. ____ Previously published asNondualityby Humanity Books.
