The Lotus and the Sunflower - Continental philosophy and Eastern thought
The Lotus and the Sunflower - Continental philosophy and Eastern
It has been said that the flower of Western philosophy is the
heliotrope (sunflower) and, of course, the lotus is a resplendent
and symbol of awakened consciousness in the East. "The Lotus and
the Sunflower" is an open forum for the discussion of philosophical
issues at the interface between Western and Eastern philosophy.
Is Taoism a process philosophy? Does Hume's empiricist analysis
of the self echo the Buddhist doctrine of no-self (anatta)? Is
Advaita Vedanta a form of philosophical idealism? How closely do
Derrida and Nagarjuna converge?
