Reflecting on Buddhist Thought

Buddhist thought is intended here to refer to the widest range of intellectual reflection found within the Buddhist tradition, broadly defined to include both historical and contemporary expositions and critiques of Buddhist doctrine. (I’m giving myself a lot of leeway, here.) Similarly, by considering “thought” as the category, this does not mean that it is limited by the intellectual constraints of religious commitment, or the structuring categories of philosophy, religious studies, or psychology. As will become clear to the reader, this is not theology, which generally works from established and accepted claims, nor is it apologetics, which seeks to justify established and accepted claims. Doubt, both systematic and curious is the driving force here. If you wish certainty, security or comfort, there are other blogs that will offer them to you.
