The 2012 edition of the online Journal of Global Buddhism has two articles of interest to those who incline toward a secular approach to Mr Gotama’s teachings.
Although he is the author of many well thought of and best selling books on Buddhism, ‘A Secular Buddhism’ by Stephen Batchelor is his first contribution to an academic journal. To read it click here.
An academic at the University of Technology, Sydney whose first book on the dharma is eagerly awaited, Winton Higgins has also contributed an article for this issue of the Journal. With the title ‘The Coming of Secular Buddhism: a Synoptic View’ you can download it here.
