9780230007123: Analytical Buddhism: The Two-tiered Illusion of Self

Does the self - a unified, separate, persisting thinker/owner/agent - exist? Drawing on Western philosophy, neurology and Theravadin Buddhism, this book argues that the self is an illusion created by a tier of non-illusory consciousness and a tier of desire-driven thought and emotion, and that separateness underpins the self's illusory status.

About the Author:

MIRI ALBAHARI is an Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Western Australia.

Review:

'This is an extraordinary book. It pursues Buddhist thought as a live philosophy, not as an already set belief system. By developing insights from the Buddhist tradition with the analytic tools of modern philosophy, Albahari produces an account of self and self-awareness that is at once continuous with mainstream philosophy of mind and refreshingly original. The result is a novel brand of eliminativism about the self, one that is phenomenologically rather than scientifically inspired.' - Uriah Kriegel, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy, University of Arizona, US

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 256 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.6in. x 0.9in.We spend our lives protecting an elusive self - but does the self actually exist Drawing on literature from Western philosophy, neuroscience and Buddhism (interpreted), the author argues that there is no self. The self - as unified owner and thinker of thoughts - is an illusion created by two tiers. A tier of naturally unified consciousness (notably absent in standard bundle-theory accounts) merges with a tier of desire-driven thoughts and emotions to yield the impression of a self. So while the self, if real, would think up the thoughts, the thoughts, in reality, think up the self. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
