In Engaging Buddhism, Garfield states that he aimed “to show that we in the West can talk with, not about, philosophers and texts in the Buddhist tradition” (p.15). In this day-long workshop, Deakin philosophers and invited speakers respond to this and other philosophical themes from the book. Themes covered include: Ethics, phenomenology, meditation, self, personal identity and comparisons and juxtapositions drawn from philosophers Wilfrid Sellars and David Hume.
