A Critique of Whitehead in Light of the Buddhist Distinction of theTwo-Truth Doctrine

Process Studies 36 (2):294-305 (2007)
Abstract
We need to distinguish systematically what is culturally creative from the degenerative forces that now rule the world. Whitehead comes closest to defining the creative when he identifies it as freedom on the human side and peace on the divine. Buddhist meditation can go deeper to realize the zero-dimension of the communal life-as-such, which corresponds to Whiteheadean freedom-and-peace as the ultimate wellspring of cultural creativity
