Product Description


'Challenging and stimulating, opens fresh channels of experience as it clears old battlefields. One of the best books on the dialogue between Buddhism and psychoanalysis that I've read. The main interlocutors are Mahayana Buddhism's "no self" and Lacan's "empty subject", with intriguing insights on every page. Mesmerising and enlightening.'- Michael Eigen, Author, Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis

Wonderful, rare book March 25 2014

one of the rare finds... once I started reading I could not stop. It is amazing how the author master two very difficult subjects in their full complexity.
If you meet Lacan on the road, hug him...... Feb. 10 2014

Very nice crossing of two similar and disparate lenses. Thought provoking, if at times a bit oblique (that comes with the territory). More than a few mind expanding moments.
