Book

Cruel Theory | Sublime Practice: Toward a Revaluation of Buddhism

 

 

EYECORNER PRESS

 

By Glenn Wallis, Tom Pepper, and Matthias Steingass

 

FROM THE INTRODUCTION:

 

What use is Buddhism today? It is perpetually hoisted up as the elixir par excellence against the acidic tensions intrinsic to living in an ever-accelerating technological society. Its remedy? Gelassenheit in the midst of the infernal samsaric whirlwind. Is that it? Is Buddhism a modern-day Epicurean path to eudaemonia, a garden that "slakes the thirst with a natural cure?"

 

This book is a radical laying bare of the brutal refusal of x-buddhism to honor its most basic pledge: abetment of liberation.
