Existential Ambiguity 2: Immediate and Reflexive Experience

Wettimuny’s The Buddha’s Teaching and the Ambiguity of Existence is one of those rare and important books that everyone needs, if only they knew it. It builds a bridge between the most important thoughts and thinkers of the east and west: the Existentialists in the west, and the Buddha in the east. More importantly, it completes the task begun by the western thinkers, to bring humankind into maturity after a particularly difficult adolescence.

Here we discuss and illustrate the distinctions among immediate, reflective and reflexive experience, building a conceptual foundation  for the more advanced ideas in the following sections.
