BISAC: Philosophy / Buddhist
For the last forty years critical theories in Europe have been positing critiques of western society without fully embracing Buddhist traditions. In Dr. Kaye’s opinion that is a terrible mistake, and he attempts a fusion between eastern and western social critique by focusing on concepts such as nothingness (Sunyata), instant enlightenment (Satori and Nirvana), bio-power, space-time and nihilism. The entire purpose of the book is to see if Buddhism and Critical Theory can create pathways out of actual oppressions due to ‘clinging of mind’ which Buddhism says is the cause of suffering (Dukkha).
