Reason's Traces (Studies in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reason's Traces addresses some of the key questions in the study of Indian and Buddhist thought: the analysis of personal identity and of ultimate reality, the interpretation of Tantric texts and traditions, and Tibetan approaches to the interpretation of Indian sources. Drawing on a wide range of scholarship, Reason's Traces reflects current work in philosophical analysis and hermeneutics, inviting readers to explore in a Buddhist context the relationship between philosophy and traditions of spiritual exercise.

Synopsis:

Reason's Traces is a collection of essays by one of the foremost authorities on Indian and Tibetan Buddhism. Kapstein, who is also a scholar of the Western philosophical tradition, sheds light on the theoretical foundations of Buddhist thought. Reason's Traces examines aspects of Buddhist philosophy in India and Tibet, in particular, the questions of personal identity and ultimate reality, and the interpretation of Tantrism.
