  • China on the Mindby Christopher Bollas

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 29.12

    Several thousand years ago Indo-European culture diverged into two ways of thinking; one went West, the other East. Tracing their differences, Christopher Bollas examines how these mentalities are now converging once again, notably in the practice of psychoanalysis.   Creating a freely associated comparison between western psychoanalysts and eastern... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 46.34

    It is difficult to think of a more urgent question for Buddhism in the late twentieth century than human rights. The political, ethical and philosophical questions surrounding human rights are debated vigorously in political and intellectual circles throughout the world and now in this volume. more...

  • The Resonance of Emptinessby Gay Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.28

    This work presents an exploration of Buddhist philosophy and practice as a potential resource for an approach to psychotherapy which is responsive to the needs of its time and context, and attempts to open up a three-way dialogue between Buddhism, psychotherapy and contemporary discourse to reveal a meaningful theory and practice for a contemporary... more...

    Ohio University Press 2014; US$ 27.99

    Burma's Mass Lay Meditation Movement: Buddhism and the Cultural Construction of Power describes a transformation in Buddhist practice in contemporary Burma.

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 59.99

    Ouyi Zhixu (1599–1655) was an eminent Chinese Buddhist monk who, contrary to his contemporaries, believed karma could be changed. Through vows, divination, repentance rituals, and ascetic acts such as burning and blood writing, he sought to alter what others understood as inevitable and inescapable. Drawing attention to Ouyi’s unique reshaping of... more...

  • Realizing Awakened Consciousnessby Richard P. Boyle

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    If, as Buddhism claims, the potential for awakening exists in all human beings, we should be able to map the phenomenon with the same science we apply to other forms of consciousness. A student of cognitive social science and a Zen practitioner for more than forty years, Richard P. Boyle brings his sophisticated perspective to bear on the development... more...

  • The Power of Denialby Bernard Faure

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 60.00 US$ 54.60

    Innumerable studies have appeared in recent decades about practically every aspect of women's lives in Western societies. The few such works on Buddhism have been quite limited in scope. In The Power of Denial , Bernard Faure takes an important step toward redressing this situation by boldly asking: does Buddhism offer women liberation or limitation?... more...

    David Webster explores the notion of desire as found in the Buddhist Pali Canon. Beginning by addressing the idea of a 'paradox of desire', whereby we must desire to end desire, the varieties of desire that are articulated in the Pali texts are examined. A range of views of desire, as found in Western thought, are presented as well as Hindu and Jain... more...

  • Awakening and Insightby Polly Young-Eisendrath; Shoji Muramoto

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 39.72

    Buddhism first came to the West many centuries ago through the Greeks, who also influenced some of the culture and practices of Indian Buddhism. As Buddhism has spread beyond India, it has always been affected by the indigenous traditions of its new homes. When Buddhism appeared in America and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s, it encountered contemporary... more...
