  • Between Buddhism and Science, Between Mind and Body
  • Prof Geoffrey Samuel
  • Since the late 19th century Buddhism has been seen as compatible with Western science. The Buddhist influence on the ecology movement has strengthened this perception. Yet the 'Buddhism' brought into relation with science has undergone rewriting under modernist influences, and critical aspects of Buddhist thought and practice are ignored. This lecture presents a different kind of dialogue, in which a Tibetan Buddhism confronts Western scientists and scholars on more equal terms.
