Claxton, and Stephen Batchelor, eds.
The Buddhist view of the mind -- how it works, how
it goes wrong, how to put it right--is being increasingly recognized as
both profound and highly practical by scientists, counselors, and other
professionals. In The Psychology of Awakening, editors Gay
Watson, Stephen Batchelor and Guy Claxton
have compiled a wide-ranging and penetrating selection of articles on
the relevance and application of Buddhist
philosophy and practice in the modern Western World.
Divided into four parts, the book explores the philosophical issues in
and the contemporary mind; the scientific perspective of
Buddhist concepts of the development of body, mind, and spirit; Buddhism
and psychotherapy; and practical applications of Buddhism
in contemporary life.
