[Workshop] Contradiction & Japanese Buddhism

Broadcast live streaming video on Ustream

Date│Jan 17~18, 2015
Venue 1│Yoshida Izumidono, Yoshida Campus, Kyoto University
Venue 2│Shirankaikan Annex, Yoshida Campus, Kyoto University


We encounter a number of contradictions in texts of Japanese Buddhism and philosophy. Are they mere rhetoric, purporting to shock people? Can they be explained away in one or another non-paradoxical manner? Or are they meant to be literally true or real? If so, is the reality really inconsistent? With the support of the John Templeton Foundation and Kyoto University, an international team of scholars will investigate those issues. Though being run in English, this symposium is opened to anyone who is interested in Buddhism and philosophy.
