Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki

, Richard M. Jaffe
University of California Press

In this essay, D. T. Suzuki presents his views on the relationship between human beings and “nature.” Prompted by a conference on earth and humans, Suzuki presents a modernized perspective on the topic that builds on Zen Buddhism as well as European and American romanticism, idealism, and transcendentalism. Suzuki’s presentation of this material had an important impact on the environmental movement in the United States in the 1960s.

Keywords:   Zen Buddhism, nature, environment, Eranos conferences
