3.0 étoiles sur 5 Convoluted writing, still worth the effort 3 février 2016
Par Jared Kobos - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've read most of Stephen Batchelor's books, and they have all been worth reading. This one is definitely worth reading too, but to get to the content you have to spend a lot of energy parsing some of the most opaque writing I've ever seen outside of academia. This is Batchelor's first book, written during a time when he was immersing himself in Buddhist scripture and existentialist writings. As a result, the book is full of unnecessarily convoluted and elaborate sentences such as "...existence as such is anxiously felt as too massive and overwhelming to be concernfully accepted in its totality." Words like "authenticate" are used in a specific and unusual way, with no explanation, and jargon ("factical", "involuted", "concernfully") is used with no introduction.

The overall effect is very try-hard, like a high school senior trying to make her senior term paper look like Wittgenstein. Batchelor himself would probably agree with me that this style is distracting and unhelpful, since his writing gets clearer and more readable in all of his later books.

Again, the ideas here are interesting and thought-provoking, and the existential perspective on Buddhism is a unique angle. The 150 pages could have been shortened to 100 or so if the SAT words were cut out, but even so 150 pages is manageable and well worth your time.

I keep trying Stephen's books one after the other because I like the Secular Buddhist concept, but Stephen has a huge vocabulary of words I've never even heard of and I grow fatigued spending so much time looking them up so I can try to follow. Maybe if you can ace the MAT test, you can love the book. His online interviews are a little simpler to follow...for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Powerful, intriguing and extremely engaging. 31 mai 2006

I found this book of approximately 130 pages absolutely fascinating. While it is very non-traditional, it provides a bridge that helps the modern person to relate some of the most important concepts of Buddhism through the bridge provided by Western existentialist thought.

This book is very well written and Stephen Batchelor is very credible as an author having spent considerable time in Asia and having been a monk for 10 years in both the Tibetan and Zen traditions. While the book is largely his own perspective, it is a valuable one given his life experience and ability to convey complex topics in easy to understand terms. It certainly got my attention!

If you are looking to read your first book on Buddhism or Existentialism, this is probably not for you. However, if you are familiar to one or both of these topics and/or are looking to understand the human condition more deeply, then you will not be disappointed at the ideas presented here.

For me, this was a two sitting book that completely engaged me. I have read many books on Buddhism and Existentialism and thought this had a lot to offer a modern person in terms of making Buddhism relevant to modern contexts. I also found it a useful and sensitive exploration of the nature of loneliness and the limitations of the human condition. Among other things, it poignantly expressed how loneliness and the reality of our ultimate death could help us deepen our experience of reality through relationship and fuller engagement with life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating, but requires some previous knowledge 16 août 2011
Par b in MA - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The author, who is very knowledgeable about the subject, helps explain why Buddha talked about despair and anguish and offers some insight into how the human condition can improve using Siddhartha's methods. He demonstrates how we can be alone and yet, at the same time, depend so much on being with others. if you already have some knowledge of Buddhism, this is a fascinating book. If not, you might have some rough going with it and it will take some effort for you to follow Bachelor's logic. There are other books by Bachelor which are more accessible.
