It merely signified dhammaangani unhealthy moral conditions had wholly passed away. Adopted from without by Buddhism, it seems to have been jealously guarded from noumenal implications by the orthodox. It is true that Aristotle was too progressive and original a thinker to stop here. Readers whose sympathies are not confined to the shores of the Mediterranean and iEgean seas will feel a stir of interest, similar in kind if fainter in degree, on becoming more closely acquainted with the Buddhist text -book entitled Dhamma-Sangani.

Psychological earnestness, then, and psychological in- quiry into mental phenomena, coexisting apart from, and in opposition to, the usual assumption of a psychical entity: The main constituents of 1 Cf- e. By this procedure we shall best place our- selves at the threshold, so to speak, of the Buddhist position, both as to its psychology and its view of things in general, and be thus better led up to the ethical import of the questions in the first part. Psychological analysis, for instance, shows that we mky confuse the dhammasangsni registration of our knowledge with the actual disposition of the originals.

Our manual is itself a book of reference to earlier books, and presents us with many terms and formulae taken out of that setting of occasion and of discourse enshrined in which we meet them in the Dnammasangani. There is no other being or existence or person or individual whatever.

The very fact that the Buddhist theory, with all its analytical and symmetrical fulness of exposition, yields so very abstract and schematic a result leaves the way open to surmise that, even in the time of our Manual, the process of sense impression was not materialistically conceived.

The three cardinal sources of misery are positive in form. Contact, joy, thinking, self-collectedness ; the faculties of faith, concentration, energy, wisdom, mindfulness, vitality ; right views, right endeavour, etc.

On the other hand, the kind of questions raised in our Manual are on a different plane altogether from those raised in the third book in the Abhidhamma Pitaka, viz. Dhammasangani begins with a Matika Pali for “matrix”which is a list of classifications of Dhammas, variously translated as nature,ideas, phenomena, states, patterns etc. Sign In Don’t have an englis In Aristotle all is changed.

A corresponding explicitness in the notion of consciousness dahmmasangani self-consciousness, or at least in the use of some equivalent terms, has yet to be traced. There each heading stands at the end of its section. Edifying discourse it left to the Suttanta Books. The cook represents all the associated states in the thought- complex, englih functioning in one specific way.

And it is even objectified so far as to signify further the result of any such act — that is, in its connotation of mark or sign. Keeping in view, then, the notion of Good dhammasanhani thought, word and deed, as a means entailing various kinds of felicific result, we may see in Book I.

This honesty, to which we usually add a mistaken view of the course of thought and action he prescribed in consequence of the honesty, gains him the name of Pessimist. I believe that the modem ethics of evolution would have profoundly interested the early Buddhists, who after their sort and their age were themselves evolutionists. The logical form of Universal in term and in proposition is as much a token of our weakness in realizing the Particular as of our strength in constructing what is at best an abstract and hypothetical whole.


On the other hand, phusati, photthabbam to touch, the tangible are specialized to express the activity of one of the senses. Two instances, at least, occur to me in the Nikayas, 2 where the talk was cut short, in the one case by Gotama himself, in the other by the woman- apostle Dhammadinna, when the interlocutor brought up Nirvana for discussion of this sort.

It remains altogether, or almost alto- gether, at the old standpoint of the Nikayas as regards 1 AtthasalinI, p.
