Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Tiantai Doctrine of Evil as the Good: A Response to David R. Loy

Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Tiantai Doctrine of Evil as the Good: A Response to David R. Loy Department of Religion/Department of Philosophy, Northwestern University In a recent issue of this journal (vol. 54 [1] : 99±103), David Loy has done me the honor of publishing his sympathetic and thoughtful review of my book Evil and/or/ as the Good: Omnicentrism, Intersubjectivity, and Value Paradox in Tiantai Buddhist Thought (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2000). Loy has done an excellent job of bringing to the forefront some of the most troubling and distinctive aspects of the Tiantai Buddhist position on evil, as expressed in particular in the works of Siming Zhili, the focus of my book.

Abstract

Department of Religion/Department of Philosophy, Northwestern University In a recent issue of this journal (vol. 54 [1] : 99±103), David Loy has done me the honor of publishing his sympathetic and thoughtful review of my book Evil and/or/ as the Good: Omnicentrism, Intersubjectivity, and Value Paradox in Tiantai Buddhist Thought (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2000). Loy has done an excellent job of bringing to the forefront some of the most troubling and distinctive aspects of the Tiantai Buddhist position on evil, as expressed in particular in the works of Siming Zhili, the focus of my book. Inevitably, with the nit-picky vanity that perhaps assails every reviewee, I feel some points have been imperfectly understood or represented, but in general I want before anything else to express my gratitude to Loy for the insight and acuity with which he has handled this material, the care he has taken in reading and responding to the book, and the candor, lucidity, and forcefulness with which he has expressed a very reasonable, non-Tiantai Mahayana response to Å Å some of the more radical and counterintuitive Tiantai ideas.
