2021 Ryukoku Lecture: Prof. Akira Yoshida
March 8 - March 11
Views of the Human Beings in the Doctrines of the Buddhist Praxis 「仏教の修道論に見られる人間観」
Akira Yoshida, Associate Professor, Ryukoku University, Faculty of Economics
How did the teaching of early Buddhism view human beings and their Buddhist praxis toward enlightenment in India? We refer to the Abhidharma literatures by the Sarvastivada and writings in the sixth century about the theory of Buddhist epistemology.
修道論(修行論)に関する仏教の教説の中に見られる人間観のうちで注目すべきいくつかの特徴を見てみたい。特に、説一切有部のアビダルマ文献における記述や、6 世紀以降の 仏教認識論における記述を中心的にあつかう予定である。
