Has anyone read, "Beyond Personal Identity: Dogen, Nishida and a Phenomenology of No-self" by Gereon Kopf, 2001 (Curzon)

I have just started it and it's one hell of a read (ie I'm not understanding much of it so far but it's really good).

no, but sounds good. What is beyond personal identity?

I don't know. I'm still on the introductory chapters which are about the problem of defining what personal identity is. I had to look up what 'phenomenology' is 'the science of phenomena as distinct from that of the nature of being; an approach that concentrates on the study of consciousness and the objects of direct experience'.

I've just read the Wiki entry on Kitaro Nishida.
It is interesting.
