Analytical Buddhism: The Two-tiered Illusion of Self by M. Albahari

By M. Albahari

Does the self - a unified, separate, persisting thinker/owner/agent - exist? Drawing on Western philosophy, neurology and Theravadin Buddhism, this booklet argues that the self is an phantasm created via a tier of non-illusory recognition and a tier of desire-driven concept and emotion, and that separateness underpins the self's illusory status.
