    Dale Stuart Wright (1998). Philosophical Meditations on Zen Buddhism. Cambridge University Press.
    This book is the first to engage Zen Buddhism philosophically on crucial issues from a perspective that is informed by the traditions of western philosophy and religion. It focuses on one renowned Zen master, Huang Po, whose recorded sayings exemplify the spirit of the 'golden age' of Zen in medieval China, and on the transmission of these writings to the West. The author makes a bold attempt to articulate a post-romantic understanding of Zen applicable to contemporary world culture. While deeply (...)

    Dale S. Wright (1993). Emancipation From What? The Concept of Freedom in Classical Ch'an Buddhism. Asian Philosophy 3 (2):113 – 124.
    Abstract This essay attempts to articulate an understanding of the goal of ?freedom? in classical Ch'an Buddhism by setting concerns for ?liberation? in relation to the kinds of authority and regulated structure characteristic of Sung dynasty Ch'an monasteries. It begins with the thesis that early Western interpreters of Zen have tended to emphasise the dimensions of Zen freedom that accord with modem Western versions of freedom presupposing tension between freedom and authority as well as between individual autonomy and the demands (...)

  10. Dale S. Wright (2016). What is Buddhist Enlightenment? Oxford University Press Usa.
    What kind of person should I strive to be? What ideals should I pursue in my life? These questions, or versions of them, are essential building blocks of the human condition, and often recur throughout our lives. Dale S. Wright argues that the question at the heart of them all is one most commonly associated with Buddhism: What is enlightenment? Any serious practitioner of human life, religious or not, confronts the challenge of how to reach a different, improved--or enlightened--state of (...)
