Deleuze, Spinoza and the Question of Reincarnation in the Mahāyāna Tradition

In Deleuze and Buddhism. London: Palgrave Macmillan. pp. 33-49 (2016)

What I aim to develop in this paper is a secular foundation to the concept of reincarnation that is consistent with the different ways in which this concept is understood across a number of Buddhist traditions, drawing in particular upon the doctrinal understanding of reincarnation in the Mahāyāna or Madhyamaka tradition as presented in the work of Śāntideva and Nāgārjuna.
