sharing in the form of dhamma

Postby Jason » Sat Oct 02, 2010 12:55 am

For anyone who's also into Western philosophy, you might find interesting. You can even tell me it sucks if you want. :D

It looks good, Jason.
A good and elderly friend of mine is an expert on Hereclitus and whenever we have conversations it makes me wonder about the cross-fertilization of the Hellenic philosophy and Early Buddhist thought.
At times like this I wish I had the time to satisfy my curiosity of western philosophy.
Thanks for sharing!
kind regards

Ben

I liked the article. The Buddha never claimed to have a lock on the Dhamma, so I would expect one can find nuggets of Dhamma elsewhere.

Kinda reminded me of the Nagara Sutta:
"So I too found the ancient path, the ancient trail, traveled by the Awakened Ones of old."

The Kant-Bentham ethical spectrum strikes me as a false dichotomy, but the article was nevertheless interesting on account of my never having read Plato.
