Who is arguing about the cat? Moral action and enlightenment according to dōgen

Philosophy East and West 47 (3):383-397 (1997)
This essay is an analysis of Dōgen's commentary on "Nan-ch'üan's Cutting of the Cat" as found in section 1.6 of the Shōbōgenzō Zuimonki. It argues that Dōgen's conception of hishiryō ("without-thinking") is the starting point for understanding Dōgen's moral vision, and employs this idea in the interpretation of the passage
