Chiasmus in Buddha Hagiography

Recommended Posts

This quote from Bruce.Lincoln is appropriate:


Processes of authorization that invoke the divine or transcendent at some crucial point of their operation seem typical of societies in which the foundational assumptions...made normative by the European Enlightenment have not acquired hegemonic status. It would be foolish-not to say presumptuous and ethnocentric-for those of us who stand on one side of the divide to underestimate the complexity, seriousness, efficacy, and importance of the differing ideological styles more commonly employed by our counterparts located on the other.'
