Who Is Arguing about the Cat? Moral Action and Enlightenment According to Dogen

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 is the starting point for understanding Dōgen's moral vision, and employs this idea in the interpretation of the passage.
