Buddhist Monks and Business Matters: Still More Papers on Monastic Buddhism in India
Author: Schopen, Gregory;
This is the second in a series of collected essays by one of today’s most distinguished scholars of Indian Buddhism. (Publication of a third collection is planned in early 2005.) In these articles, all save one published in various places from 1994 through 2001, Gregory Schopen once again displays the erudition and originality that have contributed to a major shift in the way that Indian Buddhism is perceived, understood, and studied.
Studies in the Buddhist Traditions Series
"Unquestionably the freshest, most exciting scholarship to have emerged in the field in half a century. [Schopen] is amazingly prolific, unfailingly interesting, enrichingly edifying and, more often than not, completely convincing.... He seeks to do for Buddhist studies what Marx did to Hegel: to stand it on its head." —Buddhist Studies Review

"[Schopen’s] style is clear because he’s such a complete master of his subject, ... but it’s his urbanity and wit that stay with you." —Taipai Times, 13 June 2004

Author: Schopen, Gregory;
