Nonduality : a study in comparative philosophy by David Loy( Book )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Western philosophers are poorly informed about the issues involved in nonduality, since this topic is usually associated with various kinds of absolute idealism in the West, or mystical traditions in the East. Increasingly, however, this topic is finding its way into Western philosophical debates. In this "scholarly but leisurely and very readable" (Spectrum Review) analysis of the philosophies of nondualism of (Hindu) Vedanta, Mahayana Buddhism, and Taoism, Loy extracts what he calls "a core doctrine" of nonduality of seer and seen from these three worldviews and then applies the doctrine in various ways, including a critique of Derrida's deconstructionism
A new Buddhist path : enlightenment, evolution, and ethics in the modern world by David Loy( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David R. Loy addresses head-on the most pressing issues of Buddhist philosophy in our time. What is the meaning of enlightenment--is it an escape from the world, or is it a form of psychological healing? How can one reconcile modern scientific theory with ancient religious teachings? What is our role in the universe? Loy shows us that neither Buddhism nor secular society by itself is sufficient to answer these questions. Instead, he investigates the unexpected intersections of the two
The world is made of stories by David Loy( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this unique and utterly novel presentation, David Loy explores the fascinating proposition that the stories we tell 8212; about what is and is not possible, about ourselves, about right and wrong, life and death, about the world and everything in it 8212; become the very building blocks of our experience and of the universe itself. Loy uses an intriguing mixture of quotations from familiar and less-familiar sources and brief standalone micro-essays, engaging both the reader and himself in challenging and illuminating dialogue. As we come to see that the world is made 8212; in a word 8212; of stories, we come to a richer understanding of that most elusive of Buddhist ideas: shunyata, the "generative emptiness" that makes up all forms. Reminiscent of Zen koans and works of sophisticated poetry, this book rewards both casual reading and deep reflection

14 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great awakening : a Buddhist social theory by David Loy( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most essential insight that Buddhism offers is that all our individual suffering arises from three and only three sources, known in Buddhism as the three poisons: greed, ill-will, and delusion. In The Great Awakening, scholar and Zen teacher David Loy examines how these three poisons, embodied in society's institutions, lie at the root of all social maladies as well. The teachings of Buddhism present a way that the individual can counteract these to alleviate personal suffering, and in the The Great Awakening Loy boldly examines how these teachings can be applied to institutions and even whole cultures for the alleviation of suffering on a collective level. This book will help both Buddhists and non-Buddhists to realize the social importance of Buddhist teachings, while providing a theoretical framework for socially engaged members of society to apply their spiritual principles to collective social issues. The Great Awakening shows how Buddhism can help our postmodern world develop liberative possibilities otherwise obscured by the anti-religious bias of so much contemporary social theory
