By Jin Y. Park

Buddhism and Postmodernity is a reaction to a few of the questions that experience emerged within the strategy of Buddhism's encounters with modernity and the West. Jin Y. Park widely outlines those questions as follows: first, why are the interpretations and reviews of Buddhism so diverse in Europe (in the 19th century), within the usa (in the 20th century), and in conventional Asia; moment, why does Zen Buddhism, which bargains a extensively egalitarian imaginative and prescient, continue a strongly authoritarian management; and 3rd, what moral paradigm may be drawn from the Buddhist-postmodern type of philosophy? Park argues that, as unrelated as those questions could appear, the problems that experience generated them are with regards to perennial philosophical topics of identification, institutional energy, and ethics, respectively. every one of those subject matters constitutes one part of Buddhism and Postmodernity. Park discusses the 3 concerns within the ebook in the course of the exploration of the Buddhist suggestions of self and others, language and pondering, and universality and particularities. such a lot of this dialogue is drawn from the East Asian Buddhist traditions of Zen and Huayan Buddhism in reference to the Continental philosophies of postmodernism, hermeneutics, and deconstruction. Self-critical from either the Buddhist and Western philosophical views, Buddhism and Postmodernity issues the reader towards a brand new figuring out of Buddhist philosophy and provides a Buddhist-postmodern moral paradigm that demanding situations normative ethics of metaphysical traditions.
