In conclusion, Shulman's Rethinking the Buddha succeeds as a description of the integrated elements of teaching, reflection, argument, and observation of the early Buddhist community, and the importance of reading the statements of the four truths and related teachings on selflessness and dependent origination as local observations on a meditator's present experience: "this is suffering," "this is the cause of suffering," et cetera. Yet the book stumbles in its attempt to bracket off and evaluate a distinct domain of philosophy.
