Buddhaphobia Update

It's been a while since I've written here about Buddhaphobia

Buddhaphobia is in a transitional state (aren't we all?!). What was the whole book now seems to me to be a first chapter, or first part, of something larger. Not physically larger but more meaningful. This is perhaps the hardest project I've ever done. It's going to take a little time to get it together as a whole.

That means I shall tear down what I have and rebuild it. Never fear, some projects are like that. I wrote it under steam from The Ecological Thought. I think my writing and thinking got a lot better since then. I need to write it on its own time and I need to start from scratch, I think, then see what I can salvage. As you know it may not take long once I start it that way : )

But in the mean time I'm finishing an essay called “Buddhaphobia,” a long one, for a collection I'm planning with two Buddhist philosophers.

Any progress on the essay? Who are you collaborating with for the collection?
