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. Mesmerizing and enlightening."--Michael Eigen, author, Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis"

HASH(0xa2be9e58) out of 5 stars 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.
