Steven Heine, "Readings of Dōgen's 'Treasury of the True Dharma Eye'"(Columbia UP, 2020)

Play
Read more

The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye (Shōbōgenzō) is the masterwork of Dōgen (1200–1253), founder of the Sōtō Zen Buddhist sect in Kamakura-era Japan. It is one of the most important Zen Buddhist collections, composed during a period of remarkable religious diversity and experimentation. The text is complex and compelling, famed for its eloquent yet perplexing manner of expressing the core precepts of Zen teachings and practice.

Readings of Dōgen's "Treasury of the True Dharma Eye" (Columbia University Press) is a comprehensive introduction to this essential Zen text, offering a textual, historical, literary, and philosophical examination of Dōgen’s treatise. Steven Heine explores the religious and cultural context in which the Treasury was composed and provides a detailed study of the various versions of the medieval text that have been compiled over the centuries.

He includes nuanced readings of Dōgen’s use of inventive rhetorical flourishes and the range of East Asian Buddhist textual and cultural influences that shaped the work. Heine explicates the philosophical implications of Dōgen’s views on contemplative experience and attaining and sustaining enlightenment, showing the depth of his distinctive understanding of spiritual awakening.

Readings of Dōgen’s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye will give students and other readers a full understanding of this fundamental work of world religious literature.

Steven Heine is professor of religious studies and history and director of Asian studies at Florida International University.

Dr. Yakir Englander is the National Director of Leadership programs at the Israeli-American Council. He also teaches at the AJR. He is a Fulbright scholar and was a visiting professor of Religion at Northwestern University, the Shalom Hartman Institute and Harvard Divinity School. His books are Sexuality and the Body in New Religious Zionist Discourse (English/Hebrew and The Male Body in Jewish Lithuanian Ultra-Orthodoxy (Hebrew).

Interview 80: Steven Heine on the Weirdest People in the World

Play

Our guest today is Steven Heine, a Canadian professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia and a leader in the field of cultural psychology. In 2010, he, along with his colleagues Joseph Henrich and Ava Norenzayan wrote the ground-breaking paper ‘The WEIRDest’ people in the world?’ with WEIRD meaning Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic. The paper suggests that the view we have of the mind derived from the research of behavioural scientists is distorted due to the majority of studies in this field being done on only a small and not particularly representative sector of the human population. This will be the topic of our conversation today.

Steven Heine (2), Oct. 22, 2012: "Positive Self-Views, East and West"

Play
Read more
A core psychological motivation for people is to view themselves positively, yet for decades the vast majority of evidence for this motivation came from North American samples. More recent research finds that this motivation varies importantly across cultures, because there are different kinds of positive views that are prioritized in different cultures. Positive self-views are primarily made manifest in North America through a desire to maintain high self-esteem – that is, a desire to have a positive evaluation of themselves. In contrast, the kind of positive self-view that is prioritized in several East Asian cultures is a strong desire to maintain face – that is, a desire to have others in one’s social network judge that the individual is functioning adequately in their position within that network. These two distinct kinds of positive self-views are associated with highly divergent psychological processes. In their efforts to maintain high self-esteem, North Americans demonstrate stronger tendencies for self-enhancement, they show more of a promotion focus, maintain a largely internal frame of awareness, and have more entity theories of abilities. In contrast, in their efforts to maintain face, East Asians show stronger tendencies for self-improvement, demonstrate more of a prevention focus, maintain a largely external frame of awareness, and have more incremental theories of abilities. Evidence for cultural variation in each of these processes will be discussed, alongside discussions of alternative explanations.
