Description About the author Contents
Western Scientists and Tibetan Buddhists Examine Human Nature
This book examines how the views of Western science hold up to scrutiny by Tibetan Buddhists. Resulting from a meeting between the Dalai Lama, leading Western scholars and a group of Tibetan monks, the volume includes essays exploring points of difference and overlap between two perspectives.
In a series of essays, the participating scientists and scholars ask not only how Tibetan and Western understandings of emotion differ, but how Western behavioral science might broaden and enrich its understanding of human nature to do justice to the study of human emotions.

Visions of Compassion, Edited by Richard J Davidson and Anne Harrington, With a chapter by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Oxford University Press, Hardcover, 263 pages, $63.00
