Description About the author Contents
The work presents in clear focus, comparative perspectives on the nature of man, mind, motivation, conflict, anxiety and suffering, as well as the therapeutic management of these problems, in both the writings of Sigmund Freud and the discourses of the Buddha. The nature of the instinct of sexuality, ego instinct and the death instinct in Freud are compared to parallel concepts in Buddhism.
An interesting addition to the study is the discussion of the question whether Shopenhauer is a link between Freud and Buddhism.
This edition of the book also throws new light on some of the dilemmas of Freudian psychology from a Buddhist perspective. It is a valuable contribution to the study of philosophy in cross-cultural perspective and should be of interest to both scholars and general readers.
