A real Jedi gem, here is a source I've referred to in my "Introduction to Meditative Literature" independent study. Raises some very, very insightful issues that I'd be more than willing to bounce of anyone.

Hope it finds you well this week,

This stuff is really dense for me. I haven't studied philosophy, or know anything about these philosophies. Perhaps you could do a project that translates this in a simpler document to give someone a shorter overview into these?

LOL I'm still workin' on my project/independent study of meditative literature!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I posted this for folks to read and bring up anything that catches their eye. Staal is an excellent that has much to contribute to Jedi lore studies. This comparison between two very quintessential philosophic developments is not only a heady subject, but the process and inspiration for doing so needs some attention drawn to it. Comparative studies, which he is a pioneer of, necessitates a certain quality of mindfulness that must be adressed before you really dive into something, and he makes this clear in the start of his paper.

Perhaps we could start there? :cheer:

What role do/can the Jedi play in the field of comparative studies? More specifically, how have the comparisons (and differences) drawn between this two major modalities influenced the world views that we are experimenting with/living with today?

The role played depends on the person. For those with an interest in comparative studies, then I think this could be a good reference to open up some possibilities. It isn't my area of interest, but I bet there are plenty around who would enjoy this. It's a natural extension of taking some philosophy classes.
