Description About the author
 

This collection of essays applies Pierre Hadot's approach to Hellenistic philosophy as spiritual practice and as a way of life to Buddhist philosophy. Written by prominent Buddhist scholars, these essays demonstrate that Buddhist philosophy can fruitfully be analyzed in line with Hadot's insights.
Buddhist Spiritual Practices is a collection of integrated essays that applies Pierre Hadot's well-known approach to philosophy to Buddhist thought. Hadot maintained that philosophy in the Hellenistic period was understood as a form of spiritual practice a guide to a way of life. These essays, written by prominent Buddhist scholars, demonstrate that Buddhist philosophy can fruitfully be analyzed in line with Hadot's insights, and that doing so can contribute to contemporary discussions of the purpose of education and the role of spirituality in philosophical discourse. A must read for anyone interested in the current state of philosophy and Buddhism's place within the academic curriculum. It will also appeal to historians, students of religion, and anyone interested in the deeper aims of education. An extensive bibliography of works by and on Hadot, Buddhist sources, and other secondary literature complete the book.
