Overview

Masao Abe: A Zen Life of Dialogue is a compilation of essays that cover the life anti work of Masao Abe, perhaps one of the greatest Zen Buddhist communicators of the twentieth century. In spirit of his early mentor, D.T. Suzuki, Masao Abe has opened up a rich dialogue between Japan anti the West. He is considered the leading living Zen figure in the famous Kyoto School of Buddhist thought and the successor of D. T. Suzuki as the foremost exponent of Zen Buddhism in the West.

Through stories anti recollections, 35 leading intellectual figures explore Abe's encounter with the West, including his work on interfaith dialogue as a basis for world peace as well as his comparative philosophical scholarship over the past thirty years.
