Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory: The Dharma of Natural Systems

Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory: The Dharma of Natural Systems

English | 1991 | ISBN: 0791406369 | 254 Pages | PDF | 10.3 MB

This book brings important new dimensions to the interface between contemporary Western science and ancient Eastern wisdom. Here for the first time the concepts and insights of general systems theory are presented in tandem with those of the Buddha. Remarkable convergences appear between core Buddhist teachings and the systems view of reality, arising in our century from biology and extending into the social and cognitive sciences. Giving a cogent introduction to both bodies of thought, and a fresh interpretation of the Buddha's core teaching of dependent co-arising, this book shows how their common perspective on causality can inform our lives. The interdependence of all beings provides the context for clarifying both the role of meditative practice and guidelines for effective action on behalf of the common good.
