Book Description

June 16, 2002 0415217946 978-0415217941

Buddhism first came to the West many centuries ago through the Greeks, who also influenced some of the culture and practices of Indian Buddhism. As Buddhism has spread beyond India, it has always been affected by the indigenous traditions of its new homes. When Buddhism appeared in America and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s, it encountered contemporary psychology and psychotherapy, rather than religious traditions. Since the 1990s, many efforts have been made by Westerners to analyze and integrate the similarities and differences between Buddhism and it therapeutic ancestors, particularly Jungian psychology.

Taking Japanese Zen-Buddhism as its starting point, this volume is a collection of critiques, commentaries, and histories about a particular meeting of Buddhism and psychology. It is based on the Zen Buddhism and Psychotherapy conference that took place in Kyoto, Japan, in 1999, expanded by additional papers, and includes:

  • new perspectives on Buddhism and psychology, East and West
  • cautions and insights about potential confusions
  • traditional ideas in a new light.

It also features a new translation of the conversation between Schin'ichi Hisamatsu and Carl Jung which took place in 1958.

Awakening and Insight expresses a meeting of minds, Japanese and Western, in a way that opens new questions about and sheds new light on our subjective lives. It will be of great interest to students, scholars and practitioners of psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and analytical psychology, as well as anyone involved in Zen Buddhism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant new guide to Buddishm and psychology August 26, 2002
Format:Paperback
Buddhism and psychology have recently gained increasing interest for their intriguing similarities about the human mind, growth, inner healing, and creativity. In this stimulating book, the editors offer a variety of provocative essays. I found the discussions about Jungian psychology and its relevance to Buddhism today to be particularly interesting. Strongly recommended.
