Summary

"In Meeting of Minds, eleven prominent scholars explore intellectual and religious interactions among diverse traditions of the East Asian world. The authors consider central issues including concepts of religious authority, perceptions of the relation between knowledge and action, the sense of "the sacred" within the realm of ordinary human existence, and the concern with historical experience and practicality as criteria for evaluating ideas and beliefs."--BOOK JACKET.
