An Introduction to Buddhist Psychology is a lucid, intelligible, and authentic introduction to the foundations of Buddhist psychology. It provides comprehensive coverage of the basic concepts and issues in the psychology of Buddhism, and thus it deals with the nature of psychological inquiry, concepts of the mind, consciousness and behavior, motivation, emotions and percentile, and the therapeutic structure of Buddhist psychology. For the third edition, a new chapter on the mind-body relationship and Buddhist contextualism has been added.

About the Author:

Padmasiri De Silva was professor and head of philosophy and psychology at the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka (1980-1989). He also held visiting positions at the University of Pittsburgh and the ISLE program in the United States, the National University of Singapore, and the University of Wiakato. He was coordinator of the IRC program “Environment, Ethics, and Education” in Singapore. Currently he is research fellow at Monash University.

Review:

Professor De Silva’s familiarity with Western psychology and philosophy, along with his deep knowledge of Theravadan traditions gives his work [an] informed balance between ancient wisdom and modern thought. This new edition of his book brings contemporary philosophy of mind together with a clear account of early Buddhist texts. It is an authoritative work that will be welcomed by scholars from both Buddhist and Western traditions. (John Pickering)
