Language, Thought, and Logical Paradoxes

Language, Thought, and Logical Paradoxes by Douglas M. Burns is an approach to the problem of paradoxes from within the reference of Theravada Buddhism. In 1970 Dr. Burns spent nine months in meditation practice. For over seven months of this period he was a monk and a disciple of the Venerable Ajahn Chah, one of Thailand’s most well respected meditation teachers. This same spirit of logical analysis combined with introspective awareness is reflected in this present writing. His other main Buddhist works are Buddhism and Depth Psychology and Nirvana, Nihilism and Satori. In 1977 Dr Burns mysteriously disappeared while exploring a national park in the south of Thailand. He was in his mid thirties at that time. Download the ebook here (54 pages/333 Kb):
