I must begin by saying I have not read the last half of this book. Reading the first half, I gained a strong impression that both the western scientists and the eastern Buddhists were over desperate in seeking consensus. I happen to believe that a consensus is possible, perhaps inevitable. European religion and European science have reached an impasse that seems irreconcilable. Buddhism has reconciled that impasse for me. However, I would be much more satisfied by this book if the Buddhists and the scientists were fighting it out instead of agreeing so easily. Buddhist psychology is based on different assumptions than western psychology. I am not satisfied to note that they have reached convergent conclusions. I am far more interested in proof that the convergence is not coincidence.
