“SELF AND SUBJECTIVITY: A MIDDLE WAY APPROACH”
Georges B. Dreyfus
Jackson Professor of Religion
Williams College, USA
In this talk I will discuss Buddhist theories of consciousness and their relation to views of the self. I will argue that among the many Buddhist views on this topic, the Yogacara tradition offers resources for Buddhist thinkers to elaborate a view of consciousness and the self that treads a middle way between reductionist and Cartesian views of consciousness and the self.
