Nirvana and Other Buddhist Felicities - used book

1998, ISBN: 9780521570541

ID: 329306279

Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1998. This book presents a new answer to the question: what is nirvana? Part I distinguishes between systematic and narrative thought in the Pali texts of Theravada Buddhism in South and Southeast Asia, arguing that nirvana produces closure in both, and setting nirvana in the wider category of Buddhist Felicities. Part II explores other Buddhist utopias (both eu-topias, ‘good places? and ou-topias, ‘no-places?, and relates Buddhist utopianism to studies of European and American utopian writing. The book ends with a close reading of the Vessantara Jataka, which highlights the conflict between the ascetic quest for closure and ultimate felicity, and the ongoing demands of ordinary life and society. Steven Collins discusses these issues in relation to textuality, world history, and ideology in premodern civilisations, aiming to contribute to a new vision of Buddhist history, which can hold both the inside and the outside of texts together. Printed Pages: 708 with 8 tables.. First Edition. Cloth. New/New. 14 Cms x 22 Cms., Cambridge University Press, 1998
