Description

The author of Buddhism Without Beliefs bridges the gap between Western and Eastern philosophy with this humanist approach to Buddhism.

This uniquely contemporary guide to understanding the timeless message of Buddhism, and in particular its relevance in actual human relations, was inspired by Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way Of Life, which the author translated into English, the oral instructions of living Buddhist masters, Heidegger's classic Being and Time, and the writings of the Christian theologians Paul Tillich and John MacQuarrie.

"The text is written with unusual clarity of style, making difficult matters readily accessible... It fills a serious gap in the dialogue between East and West, and does so in the most sensitive, most intelligent, and most careful way... Batchelor's strategy -- to use the Western disciplines in order to make Buddhism accessible to the Westerner -- is, I think, highly successful. The book makes a fine introduction." -- David Michael Levin, Department of Philosophy, Northwestern University

"Magnificent-inspiring!... This excellent book has come to me personally as an illuminating text, despite my close on sixty years' concern with Buddhism... [Batchelor's] approach is likely to appeal to many categories of readers who have hitherto never considered Buddhism as having great relevance to themselves." -- John Blofeld, from the Foreword
