Read the new Review of the Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Meditation (2022). Edited by Rick Repetti. Reviewed by Francisco Figueroa Medina (Kyoto University).

The review outlines the contributions of this important edited volume on recent scholarship about the philosophy of meditation. Medina evaluates claims by contributing authors from a perspective of Buddhist meditation. He writes, “throughout this Handbook, we find different ways of understanding both philosophy and meditation, as well as their relationship. Some authors highlight the apparent tensions between the two, while others, the apparent harmony between them…. Anyone interested in the philosophy of meditation will undoubtedly be inspired by a careful reading of the Routledge Handbook on the Philosophy of Meditation, which is a meaningful contribution to establishing this subfield within the academe.”
