Item description for Transformations of Mind: Philosophy as Spiritual Practice by Michael McGhee...

This book deals with issues at the intersection of philosophy, theology, religious studies and Buddhist studies; in moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, and aesthetics. It is written by a philosopher but in a quasi-autobiographical style, reflecting the relations between the form of a person's life and the nature of their philosophical reflections. It deals with questions of spirituality, moral feeling, the distinction between theistic and nontheistic religion, the impact of the Death of God controversy, and the nature of Buddhist forms of meditation and their relation to perception and action.

Publishers Description
This work offers a conception of philosophy as a form of self-enquiry which begins not in reflection, but in silence and meditation, conceived as conditions for the emergence and cessation of contending states of mind which influence perception and action. The philosopher thus becomes a kind of cartographer of a shifting interior landscape. This underlying perspective explains the personal nature of the writing and its mixing of genres. The book draws on both the Greek and Buddhist traditions, recognising that it is time for Western thinkers to acknowledge and respond to an intercultural canon. It aims to integrate ethics and a non-theistic philosophy of religion through the medium of aesthetics, mapping Buddhist mindfulness and the Greek virtues and vices of temperance and licentiousness, continence and incontinence, onto an account of the development of moral sentiments and their relation to practical judgment in the context of oppressive political and social realities.
