Wilfrid Sellars and Buddhist Philosophy
Genealogies of Mahayana Buddhism: Emptiness, Power and the question of Origin
By: Joseph G Walser
Our Price: $39.95

In a work that contributes both to a general theory of religion and power for religious studies as well as to the problem of the origin of a Buddhist movement, Walser argues that that it is the neglect of political and social power in the scholarly imagination of the history of Buddhism that has made the origins of Mahayana an intractable problem.

Buddhism, the Internet and Digital Media
Vegetarianism and Animal Ethics in Contemporary Buddhism
By: James Stewart
Our Price: $49.95
Members Price: $44.96

Buddhism is widely known to advocate a stance of total pacifism towards all sentient beings, and because of this, it is often thought that Buddhist doctrine would stipulate that non-violent food practices, such as vegetarianism, be mandatory. However, the Pali source materials do not encourage vegetarianism and most Buddhists do not practice it.

American Buddhism
American Buddhism: Methods and Findings in Recent Scholarship
By: Duncan Ryuken Williams; Christ
Our Price: $32.95
Members Price: $29.66

This is the first scholarly treatment of the emergence of American Buddhist Studies as a significant research field. The academic study of Buddhism in America--including the religions of Asian immigrants and of American-born converts--is barely twenty years old, dating from the works of Charles Prebish and Emma McCoy Layman in the 1970s. A great deal has since then, prompted by new waves of refugees from Southeast Asia and Tibet and by the rising popularity of Buddhist practices in the West. more info

Awakening and Insight, Zen Buddhism and Psychotherapy
By: Young-Eisendrath and Shoji Muramoto, ed.
Our Price: $31.95
Members Price: $28.76

Buddhism first came to the West many centuries ago through the Greeks, who also influenced some of the culture and practices of Indian Buddhism. As Buddhism has spread beyond India it has always been affected by the indigenous traditions of its new homes. When Buddhism appeared in America and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s it encountered contemporary psychology and psychotherapy, rather than religious traditions. Since the 1990s many efforts have been made by Westerners to analyse and integrate the similarities and differences between Buddhism and its therapeutic ancestors, particularly Jungian psychology. more info
Birth in Buddhism: The Suffering Fetus and Female Freedom
Birth in Buddhism: The Suffering Fetus and Female Freedom
By: Amy Paris Langenberg
Our Price: $145.00
Members Price: $130.50

Recent decades have seen a groundswell in the Buddhist world, a transnational agitation for better opportunities for Buddhist women. Many of the main players in the transnational nuns movement self-identify as feminists but other participants in this movement may not know or use the language of feminism. In fact, many ordained Buddhist women say they seek higher ordination so that they might be better Buddhist practitioners, not for the sake of gender equality.
