"A serious, secular reexamination of Buddhist ethics that acknowledges religiosity... Highly intelligent, rigorous, and absorbing."-Publishers Weekly, starred review Publishers Weekly "Brilliant, illuminating, and thought provoking, After Buddhism deserves the ultimate compliment for a work of this kind: it is useful. In probing the ancient scriptures in search of a Buddha we can relate to, Batchelor makes his dharma come thrillingly alive. A masterful achievement."-Mark Epstein, MD, author of Thoughts without a Thinker -- Mark Epstein "In this remarkable book, Stephen Batchelor transcends Buddhist dogma to surface a vision of the dharma that goes right to the heart of our contemporary global culture. Through diligent scholarship and years of practice, the author sheds new and revelatory light on the dharma. This is a must-read for all students of Buddhism."-Joan Halifax, PhD, Abbot, Upaya Zen Center -- Joan Halifax "With exemplary lucidity, Stephen Batchelor demonstrates the relevance of an ancient thought and practice in our own era. There is much in it that illuminates and clarifies-for those acquainted with Buddhism as well as those coming to it for the first time."-Pankaj Mishra -- Pankaj Mishra "Drawing on insights gleaned during decades of intensive practice, study, and writing, Batchelor's essays demonstrate conclusively how the ancient texts of Buddhism speak directly to the needs of contemporary people living active, engaged lives in the world."-Robert E. Buswell, Jr., University of California, Los Angeles -- Robert E. Buswell, Jr. "Stephen Batchelor is perhaps the finest and wisest guide in the world today to the complicated path that is combining Buddhism with humanism. For those of us who struggle with modern problems that cannot be solved by religion alone, this book will help if we are wondering what to do 'after Buddhism.'"-Greg M. Epstein, author of Good without God -- Greg M. Epstein "An audacious disquisition on Buddhism, universal dharma, reality, and suffering for the 21st century. Batchelor posits that for the deep wisdom of Buddhism to serve humanity fully in our time, it may have to transcend itself."-Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living and Coming to Our Senses -- Jon Kabat-Zinn
