I have recently finished David R. Loy’s latest book A New Buddhist Path: Enlightenment, Evolution and Ethics in the Modern World (2015, Boston: Wisdom Publications). While reading it I found myself frequently saying, “Yes! yes!” and furiously underlining passages to read again later (though, knowing me, I probably won’t).
I’ll try to briefly summarize his main ideas and explain my reaction. Of course, what I say has inevitably been filtered through and reconstructed by my mind, and in such a summary a lot of the nuances in his arguments will of course be lost. If you want an accurate and full account of what he says, then please read the book.
