<p>Abstract:</p><p>Drawing on both DÅgenâs SÅtÅ Zen and the later works of John Dewey, I argue that DÅgen uses the expression âleaving home lifeâ in the âLeaving Home Lifeâ (<i>Shukke</i> åºå®¶) fascicle of the <i>ShÅbÅgenzÅ</i> not in the sense that a person must leave home life and become a practicing monk; rather, by looking at Deweyâs understanding of aesthetic experience as the overcoming of the means/ends dualism, I argue that DÅgenâs âleaving home lifeâ similarly expresses the overcoming of the means/ends, practice/enlightenment dualisms. Considering the differences between Dewey and DÅgen, âleaving home lifeâ can then be considered a form of aesthetic experience in the sense that persons achieve a greater degree of interaction with the natural world by overcoming the means/ends dualism, yet in a way that is not structured teleologically.</p>
