When: 9.30am-5.00pm, 10 August

In his book Engaging Buddhism, Jay Garfield states that he aimed “to show that we in the West can talk with, not about, philosophers and texts in the Buddhist tradition” . In this day-long workshop, Deakin philosophers and invited speakers respond to this and other philosophical themes from the book. Themes covered include: ethics, phenomenology, meditation, self, personal identity and comparisons and juxtapositions drawn from philosophers Wilfrid Sellars and David Hume.
