Language of title: English
Editor: Nathan Katz

Description: Buddhism and Western Psychology represents one of the early volumes to contain reflections on the interface between Buddhism and psychology from a diverse and expert group of Western Buddhist scholars, psychologists, and Asian Buddhists. Fourteen essays are organized according to four major Buddhist traditions: (1) Pāli Buddhism; (2) Japanese Buddhism; (3) Sanskrit (Mahāyāna) Buddhism; and (4) Tibetan Buddhism. Areas of Western influence come from psychoanalysis, Jungian psychology, German phenomenology and the related field of existential psychology or "daseinanalyse." (Zach Rowinski 2005-03-10)
