Publisher’s Description: 

One of Western Buddhism's most sophisticated thinkers on one of Buddhism's most central topics.

The concept of nonduality lies at the very heart of Mahayana Buddhism. In the West, its usually associated with various kinds of absolute idealism in the West, or mystical traditions in the East—and as a result, many modern philosophers are poorly informed on the topic. Increasingly, however, nonduality is finding its way into Western philosophical debates. In this scholarly but leisurely and very readable analysis of the philosophies of nondualism of (Hindu) Vedanta, Mahayana Buddhism, and Taoism, renowned thinker David R. Loy extracts what he calls a core doctrine of nonduality. Loy clarifies this easily misunderstood topic with thorough, subtle, and understandable analysis.
Previously published in 1989 as Nonduality by Yale University Press.
