*Tóm tắt : This volume offers an assessment of Rennyo's contribution to Buddhist thought and the Honganji religious organization. A collection of 16 previously unpublished essays by both Japanese and non-Japanese scholars in the areas of historical studies, Shinshu studies, and comparative religion, it is the first book to confront many of the major questions surrounding the phenomenal growth of Honganji under Rennyo's leadership. The authors examine such topics as the source of Rennyo's charisma, the soteriological implications of his thought against the background of other movements in Pure Land Buddhism, and the relationship between his ideas and the growth of his church .

Nhan đề: Did Dōgen go to China? : what he wrote and when he wrote it / Steven Heine Số phân loại : 294.3927092 ST207; Đặc điểm vật lý: xvi, 298 tr. : ill., maps ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : While many studies emphasize the unique features of D=ogen's Japanese influences, this book calls attention to the way Chinese and Japanese elements were fused in D=ogen's religious vision. It reveals many new materials and insights into Dogen's main writings, including the multiple editions of the Sh=ob=ogenz=o, and how and when this seminal text was created by D=ogen and was edited and interpreted by his disciples. This book is the culmination of the author's thirty years of research on D=ogen and provides the reader with a comprehensive approach to the master's life works and an understanding of the overall career trajectory of one of the most important figures in the history of Buddhism and Asian religious thought .

*Tóm tắt : D=ogen (1200-1253), the founder of the S=ot=o Zen sect in Japan, is especially known for introducing to Japanese Buddhism many of the texts and practices that he discovered in China. Heine reconstructs the context of D=ogen's travels to and reflections on China by means of a critical look at traditional sources both by and about D=ogen in light of recent Japanese scholarship. While many studies emphasize the unique features of D=ogen's Japanese influences, this book calls attention to the way Chinese and Japanese elements were fused in D=ogen's religious vision. It reveals many new materials and insights into Dogen's main writings, including the multiple editions of the Sh=ob=ogenz=o, and how and when this seminal text was created by D=ogen and was edited and interpreted by his disciples .

Tác giả khác: Jane Ripken
*Tóm tắt : The Sufi tradition as the 'other face' and 'soft core' of Islam represents a particular creative and liberal facet characterized by tolerance, humanism and the accommodation of differences. That is why inspirational Sufi religiosity is inclusivist in nature. This book, which understands Sufi Islam as being embedded in wider social and cultural contexts, surveys the whole of the Muslim world from Sub-Saharan Africa across the Middle East to Eastern Turkestan and South Asia, with particular emphasis on Pakistan and India as its demographic centre. What distinguishes this study most clearly from the considerable number of introductions to Sufism currently available is that it offers an account of Sufi Islam from the perspective of the ethnographer as much as that of the historian of religion. Focusing on its concrete, practiced and lived forms, it shows how popular Sufism developed into the almost ubiquitous mass movement, present at all levels of Muslim society as a dynamic force until modern times. This book is a revised translation of the original German edition .

Nhan đề: Self-Expression / Mitchell S. Green Số phân loại : 294.5170972983 M681; Đặc điểm vật lý: 228Tr ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Mitchell S. Green presents a systematic philosophical study of self-expression - a pervasive phenomenon of the everyday life of humans and other species, which has received scant attention in its own right. He explores the ways in which self-expression reveals our states of thought, feeling, and experience, and he defends striking new theses concerning a wide range of fascinating topics: our ability to perceive emotion in others, artistic expression, empathy, expressive language, meaning, facial expression, and speech acts. He draws on insights from evolutionary game theory, ethology, the philosophy of language, social psychology, pragmatics, aesthetics, and neuroscience to present a stimulating and accessible interdisciplinary work .
