Product description

Review

The suggestion brought to the fore by Flanagan and Wallace-that Buddhism may be a source of insight in these areas-is a welcome and tantalizing one.--Daniel Stoljar"Nature" (01/01/0001)

This book is a stirring attack on the hubris and blind spots of the scientific establishment, combined with an engaging presentation of Buddhist wisdom as the antidote.--Joseph S. O'Leary"Japan Times" (01/01/0001)
