Buddhism and the Senses

We’re pleased to announce a forthcoming book, Buddhism and the Senses, a collection of essays organized around the theme of the five senses. Philosophically, Buddhism is known for its “sense skepticism,” its claim that the senses cannot be relied upon to provide accurate knowledge of the world. The lives of Buddhist monks and nuns have been described in terms of the restraint of the senses. And yet Buddhism has produced stunning sense objects throughout its history, inspiring the cultures of Asia, and now the world.
