NEW BOOK> Ronri to Rekishi (論理と歴史; "Logic and History"), by MORO Shigeki

Dear Colleagues,

I have just gotten a glimpse of this wonderful new book by Moro-san. It is a 450-page work that examines, in great deal, the history of the transmission and development of Buddhist Logic 因明 through China, Korea, and Japan. It's not simply a collection of the author's previous articles, but a well-wrought tour de force treatment of the logic tradition in East Asia, the likes of which I have not  yet seen in any language.

The publisher's blurb on this book, with TOC, is here:

TOC> Journal of Chinese Religions, vol.43, no.1 (2015) now available

The new issue of the Journal of Chinese Religions is now available in print and online at http://www.maneyonline.com/toc/jcr/43/1.
