The persistent tendency to regard Eastern traditions of thought as fundamentally "other" rests on the assumption that the questions they pose, and the methods used to investigate them, are incommensurable with Western philosophical practice. Buddhist Philosophy: A Comparative Approach challenges these preconceptions by presenting a series of readings that examine the prominent thinkers and texts of the Buddhist tradition in the round, introducing contemporary readers to major theories and debates at the intersection of Buddhist and Western thought."@en ;
