Merleau Ponty and Buddhism explores a new mode of philosophizing through a comparative study of Maurice Merleau Ponty's phenomenology and philosophies of major Buddhist thinkers such as Nagarjuna Chinul Dogen Shinran and Nishida Kitaro Challenging the dualistic paradigm of existing philosophical traditions Merleau Ponty proposes a philosophy in which the traditional opposites are encountered through mutual penetration Likewise a Buddhist worldview is articulated in the theory of dependent co arising or the middle path which comprehends the world and beings in the third space where the subject and the object or eternalism and annihilation exist independent of one another The thirteen essays in this volume explore this third space in their discussions of Merleau Ponty's concepts of the intentional arc the flesh of the world and the chiasm of visibility in connection with the Buddhist doctrine of no self and the five aggregates the Tiantai Buddhist concept of threefold truth Zen Buddhist huatou meditation the invocation of the Amida Buddha in True Pure Land Buddhism and Nishida's concept of basho In his philosophical project Merleau Ponty makes vigorous efforts to challenge the boundaries that divide philosophy and non philosophy the East and the West experience and concepts the subject and the object and body and mind Combining the Eastern philosophical tradition of Buddhism with Merleau Ponty's phenomenology Merleau Ponty and Buddhism offers an intercultural philosophy in which opposites intermingle in a chiasmic relationship and which brings new understanding regarding the self and the self's relation with others in a globalized and multicultural world
