A Treatise on Efficacy: Between Western and Chinese Thinking

Trans. by way of Janet Lloyd

In this hugely insightful research of Western and chinese language options of efficacy, François Jullien subtly delves into the metaphysical preconceptions of the 2 civilizations to account for diverging styles of motion in conflict, politics, and international relations. He exhibits how Western and chinese language suggestions paintings in numerous domain names (the battlefield, for instance) and analyzes ensuing acts of conflict. The chinese language strategist manipulates his personal troops and the enemy to win a conflict with out waging conflict and to lead to victory easily. Efficacity in China is hence conceived of by way of transformation (as against motion) and manipulation, making it towards what's understood as efficacy within the West. Jullien’s really good interpretations of an array of recondite texts are key to figuring out our personal conceptions of motion, time, and truth during this foray into the realm of chinese language inspiration. In its transparent and penetrating characterization of 2 contrasting perspectives of truth from a heretofore unexplored point of view, A Treatise on Efficacy could be of primary significance within the highbrow debate among East and West.

Sample text

The Buddha had through his enlightenment penetrated the true nature of all dhammas. He taught that all dhammas that arise do so because of the appropriate conditions, and he also taught which are the conditions for the arising of dhammas. Dhammas cannot arise without conditions. 27 We say of people, of other living beings or of devas that they are born, but in reality citta, cetasika and rúpa are born. When a specific type of citta accompanied by cetasikas arises together with rúpa we say in conventional language that a person is born.

It is different from the citta that hears through the ears, which is another type of citta. The citta that thinks is again another type of citta. The “Atthasåliní” states that citta is called “mind” (mano), because it determines and knows an object (årammaùa or ålambana). The word object, årammaùa, means: that which is known by citta. When citta, the dhamma that experiences, arises, it cognizes what is called an “object”. Sound is a reality. When hard things contact each other, it is a condition for the arising of sound.

They also have different points of view as far as the practice is concerned. The world evolves in accordance with the variegated nature of the cittas of different people. The world is constituted by different people living in different countries and participating in different groups and these different individuals condition the events in the world. This occurs because of the variety of thinking of each individual. The world of today evolves in this particular way according to the variegated nature of the cittas of people in this time.
