Product Description
Product Details


Among the many books in recent years on the integration of Buddhist teachings with psychotherapy, David Loy's book Lack and Transcendence stands out as perhaps the most transcendent. Its integration of insights from Existentialism, Psychotherapy, and Buddhism revolves around the singular and almost universally human suspicion that "I" am not real. Using this insight as a frame of reference, Loy translates the core teaching of the Buddha anatta as "lack" rather than the conventional "not-self." By doing so, he creates a nuance that takes the reader into the core of his or her lived life without creating metaphysical confusion around the notion of self or no-self. Loy brings together a wide range of scholarship and cross-disciplinary readings to challenge our conventional narrative about the "problem" of life and death, and of "the self." Read properly, it is a vibrant and inspirational book and should be on the desk of every Buddhist scholar and practitioner--Mu Soeng, Resident Scholar at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies
