While he followed Buddhist thinking in demolishing what he regarded as the two-headed delusion of Being and Self, he saw himself as advocating a response to the ensuing nihilist crisis that was diametrically opposed to that of his Indian counterpart. In this book Antoine Panaïoti explores the deep and complex relations between Nietzsche’s views and Buddhist philosophy. He discusses the psychological models and theories which underlie their supposedly opposing ethics of ‘great health’ and explodes the apparent dichotomy between Nietzsche’s Dionysian life-affirmation and Buddhist life-negation, arguing for a novel, hybrid response to the challenge of formulating a tenable post-nihilist ethics. His book will interest students and scholars of Nietzsche’s philosophy, Buddhist thought and the metaphysical, existential and ethical issues that emerge with the demise of theism.     Download (453.2 KB) Indian Buddhist Philosophy The Ethics of Sankara and Santideva: A Selfless Response to an Illusory World Schopenhauer’s Encounter with Indian Thought When The Clouds Part: The Uttaratantra And Its Meditative Tradition As A Bridge Between Sutra And Tantra Free Will, Agency, And Selfhood In Indian Philosophy Load more posts
