About the Book

A pioneer work in comparative philosophy. this book approaches the question of being through a range of traditions : the Greek, the Christian, the post-Nietzschean European, the Hindu, and the Buddhist.The Question of Being therefore is both a fresh, cross-cultural approach to a vital issue and also an example of comparative philosophy in action.

The editor's introduction clarifies historically the concept of comparative philosophy from A.du Perron's journey to Persia in the late 18th century to the work of such modern thinkers as Deussen, Jung and Aurbindo. Chapters by Owens and Kahn are concerned with the question of being in Greek philosophy; Gadamer, Adamczewski, and Scharff relate Heidegger's thought variously to Plato and the Greeks, the Upanisads, and the question of being. From the Eastern perspective : Halbfass examines the Indian realist school of Vaisesika with reference to Aristotle; Arapura writes of Advaita Vedanta thought of sat and brahman; Sprung discusses the importance of the Buddhist middle way in relation to the question of being ; and Mohanty contrast Vedanta, Nyaya, and Buddhist theories about being.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
