Contemporary Resources (Phenomenology)

Ven. Ñāṇavīra wrote:Probably he is not much concerned to understand the mode of thinking that refuses a horizontal (or temporal) interpretation of paticcasamuppāda and requires instead a vertical (or simultaneous) view; but if it should so happen that he is interested, then he could read—if his studies leave him time—either Heidegger's Sein und Zeit or Sartre's L'Être et le Néant. It must be made clear, however, that these works are in no way a substitute for the Canon and, further, that the philosophies of these thinkers, when considered in detail, are open to criticism in several respects. It is their manner of thinking that is instructive.[L. 107 | 113] 29 November 1964
