Abstract

BOOK REV IEWS struggles for environmental action is already present in the environmental movement, which can thus be usefully studied as itself a religious phenomenon. Concluding as it does with the voices of two Jewish writers (both influenced strongly by Buddhism), Mysticism and Social Transformation points the way to a more extended conversation between plural religious and secular traditions about these matters than was possible in the historical periods treated in the middle sections of the book. Perhaps a concluding question to Christian dialogue partners would be: What are the contemporary approaches to the connection between mysticism and social transformation flowing from or representing new embodiments of the historical figures and movements that were studied in this book in the various social contexts of the past? Brian Karafin Ithaca College ZEN AND PHILOSOPHY: AN INTELLECTUAL BIOGRAPHY OF NISHIDA KITARÖ. By Michiko Yusa. Honolulu: University of Hawai`i Press, 2002. 482 pp. Readers of this journal know that much Buddhist-Christian dialogue over the past three decades has featured Kyöto School philosophy for the Buddhist side of the conversations. The major figures in that school known to the West are Nishida Kitarö, Tanabe Hajime, Nishitani Keiji, Takeuchi Yoshinori, and Ueda Shizuteru.
