Kukai and Dogen on the Art of Enlightenment

Pamela D. Winfield

  • First in-depth study in more than 20 years to compare Kukai and Dogen's thought based on their texts and images
  • Offers a restoration of the historical symbiosis between religious thought and artistic expression
  • Relies on the Buddhist philosophical tradition rather than Western philosophical frameworks
  • First study to propose space and time as organizing principles for analyzing both meditative experience as well as visual and material culture
