It is a ordinary that whereas Asia is nondualistic, the West, due to its uncritical reliance on Greek-derived highbrow criteria, is dualistic. Dualism is a deep-seated behavior of pondering and performing in all spheres of lifestyles throughout the prism of binary opposites ends up in paralyzing sensible and theoretical problems. Asia gives you no information for the foreseeable destiny as the West unearths Asian nondualism, specially that of Mahayana Buddhism, too alien and nihilistic. nevertheless, postmodern suggestion, which purports to carry us from the dualisms embedded in modernity, seems to be in simple terms a pseudo-postmodernism. This book's novel inspiration is that the West already comprises inside one in all its extra marginalized roots, that of historical Hebrew tradition, a pre-philosophical type of nondualism which makes attainable a brand new type of nondualism, one to which the West can subscribe. This new nondualism, encouraged by way of Buddhism yet now not just like it, is an epistemological, ontological, metaphysical, and praxical heart manner either for the West and in addition among East and West.
