After Buddhism: rethinking the dharma for a secular age
      by Stephen Batchelor

In his forward to After Buddhism, Batchelor states that this is his attempt to “…articulate the dharma in a contemporary language stripped of the metaphysical and cosmological views of ancient India.  It is likewise [a] continuous attempt to divest the dharma of the trappings of dogma and priestly authority that continue to characterize the Buddhist religion….a part of a wider movement towards an unashamedly secular vision of what the Buddha taught.”

Over this ten-week Winter-Spring study group, we will be relying on After Buddhism: a workbook by Winton Higgins to give structure to our discussion of Batchelor’s After Buddhism.
