Ways of Thinking of Eastern Peoples: India, China, Tibet, Japan
East west Center, Honolula 1971 - "Each of the four sections of the study is developed on a common plan. First there is some discussion of language and logic, of the characteristic ways in which each of these Asian peoples habitually made certain types of judgment and inferences. In each section the author then proceeds to the manifestations of these patterns in formal philosophical writing, in literature, and in individual and group behavior. In each section Buddhism is used. as a kind of chemical precipitant to isolate those indigenous habits. In its pages scholar and layman alike will find a wealth of insight into the range of great problems with which Mr. Nakamura is concerned. [The reader will] come to admire [the] author as a tireless explorer on the frontiers of knowledge, a scholar whose virtuosity in research is matched by his relentless drive towards new understandings. [Foreword] 712 pages. Fine/As New. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST EDITION, 5TH PRINTING. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
