Language, Thought, and Logical Paradoxes

Posted on | September 20, 2012 | 1 Comment

Language, Thought, and Logical ParadoxesLanguage, 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):

    Another of Dr. Burns excellent writings is “The Epistemology Of Buddhism” available online at http://www.vgweb.org

    At the time of his disappearance there were rumors that Dr. Burns was a CIA asset. He was fluent in several Asian languages as well as being a psychiatrist. A great loss.
