    The Bodily Incorporation of Mechanical Devices: Ethical and Religious Issues
    with Courtney S. Campbell, Lauren A. Clark, James F. Keenan, Kathleen Matthews, Terry Winograd, and Laurie Zoloth
    Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 16 (2): 229-239. 2007.
    A substantial portion of the developed world's population is increasingly dependent on machines to make their way in the everyday world. For certain privileged groups, computers, cell phones, PDAs, Blackberries, and IPODs, all permitting the faster processing of information, are commonplace. In these populations, even exercise can be automated as persons try to achieve good physical fitness by riding stationary bikes, running on treadmills, and working out on cross-trainers that send information…Read more

    The Bodily Incorporation of Mechanical Devices: Ethical and Religious Issues
    with Courtney S. Campbell, Lauren A. Clark, James F. Keenan, Kathleen Matthews, Terry Winograd, and Laurie Zoloth
    Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 16 (3): 268-280. 2007.
    Mechanical devices implanted in the body present implications for broad themes in religious thought and experience, including the nature and destiny of the human person, the significance of a person's embodied experience, including the experiences of pain and suffering, the person's relationship to ultimate reality, the divine or the sacred, and the vocation of medicine. Community-constituting convictions and narratives inform the method and content of reasoning about such conceptual questions a…Read more

    Abstract In what ways was Nietzsche right, from a Buddhist perspective, and where did he go wrong? Nietzsche understood how the distinction we make between this world and a higher spiritual realm serves our need for security, and he saw the bad faith in religious values motivated by this need. He did not perceive how his alternative, more aristocratic values, also reflects the same anxiety. Nietzsche realised how the search for truth is motivated by a sublimated desire for symbolic security; phi…Read more

    Cyberbabel?
    Ethics and Information Technology 9 (4): 251-258. 2007.
    The new information technologies hold out the promise of instantaneous, 24/7 connection and co-presence. But to be everywhere at once is to be effectively nowhere; to be connected to everyone and everything is to be effectively disconnected. Why then do we long for faster connections and fuller connectivity? The answer this paper proposes is that we are trying to fill our existential lack, our radical sense of inadequacy and incompleteness as human beings. From such a perspective, our pursuit of…Read more

    Awareness bound and unbound: Realizing the nature of attention
    Philosophy East and West 58 (2): 223-243. 2008.
    : This essay takes seriously the many Buddhist admonitions about ‘‘not settling down in things’’ and the importance of wandering freely ‘‘without a place to rest.’’ The basic thesis is that delusion is awareness trapped, and liberation is awareness freed from grasping. The familiar words ‘‘attention’’ and ‘‘awareness’’ are used to emphasize that the distinction being drawn refers not to some abstract metaphysical entity but simply to how our everyday awareness functions. This way of distinguishi…Read more
