What Reviewers Are Saying
"This monograph is a landmark work. Dr. Nagatomo first exposes and then clearly explains the conflicting presuppositions at the base, core, or heart of Buddhist and Western philosophy. Dr. Nagatomo is one of the few scholars capable of such an important work because he has dedicated his life to communicating ideological differences between the East and West..." - Professor David E. Shaner, Furman University"
