This book provides an outline of the Buddhist shunyata principle (the inherent emptiness of all phemena), and presents a Western philosophical base by which to logically support its integration into the western mind-set. Buddhist and Western philosophy is surprisingly compatible. Buddhist Existentialism outlines the influence of Existentialists, such as Nietzsche and Kierkegaard, and introduces us to the ideas of the Madhyamaka school of Buddhist thought.
Dr Robert Miller has an MA in Philosophy from Edinburgh University and a postgraduate from Cambridge University on themes in Existentialism and Zen Buddhism. He has a PhD and is currently teaching philosophy at RMIT University, Melbourne.
