Description - Buddhist Theology by Roger Jackson

This volume is the expression of a new development in the academic study of Buddhism: scholars of Buddhism, themselves Buddhist, who seek to apply the critical tools of the academy to reassess the truth and transformative value of their tradition in its relevance to the contemporary world. Essays articulate, in diverse ways, the need for and purposes of this approach to the study of Buddhism, referred to as 'Buddhist Theology' and reflect critically upon many fundamental aspects of Buddhist understanding or practice from a variety of contemporary, critical perspectives, in order to clarify or recover elements of Buddhist traditions seen as valuable for the contemporary world. In the final section, two leading Buddhist scholars give their critical responses to the essays.
