AbstractThis book explores the possible relations between Western types of rationality and Buddhism. It also examines some cliches about Buddhism and questions the old antinomies of Western culture (“faith and reason,” or “idealism and materialism”). The use of the Buddhist notion of the Two Truths as a hermeneutic device leads to a double or multiple exposure that will call into question our mental habits and force us to ask questions differently,to think “in a new key.”
Double Exposure is somewhat of an oddity. Written by a specialist for nonspecialists, it is not a book of vulgarization. Although it aims at a better integration of Western and Buddhist thought,it is not an exercise in comparative philosophy or religion. It is neither a contribution to Buddhist scholarship in the narrow sense,nor a contribution to some vague Western “spirituality.” Cutting across traditional disciplines and blurring established genres, it provides a leisurely but deeply insightful stroll through philosophical and literary texts, dreams, poetry,and paradoxes.
本書探討西方理性型態與佛教間的關係,不僅對佛教一些窠臼或成規予以檢視,對過去西方文化中對立的思想(諸如「信仰與理性」. 「精神主義與物質主義」)也提出一些質疑. 它運用佛教的二諦思想來詮釋事物,產生一種「雙重曝光」(Double Exposure)的效果,讓我們對慣見提起疑情,促使我們站在不同角度來看待事物,發掘問題. 作者超越傳統教條,不拘一格,藉哲學. 文學. 詩偈及悖論等途徑,讓讀者在悠遊其間的同時,也能洞察幽微.
