Being and Ambiguity
Philosophical Experiments with Tiantai Buddhism
Being and Ambiguity, while making use of the methods of the Western tradition, proposes a paradigm shift derived from Chinese Buddhism's Tiantai school. Using Tiantai's "Three Truths," Ziporyn brings insights to questions of identity, determinacy, contextuality, being, desire, boredom, addiction, love, and truth. By turns rigorously analytic and irreverent, the book offers a meaningful and enjoyable reading experience in comparative philosophy.
