A commentary on the Shōbōgenzō by Francis H. Cook. Cook tries to cram Dōgen into this Rudolf Bultmann-y 'demythologization' framework, which runs counter to my understanding of the history of Japanese Buddhism and of Dōgen's liberal use of the techniques of anecdote and parable, but read with that in mind it's useful for other purposes and has clarified my understanding of various concepts.

A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights.

Interesting piece of sexuality in the Arab world.

Useless without hands-on experience.

Given that one old Arabic text, discussed in the book, recommended a method involving a warm pitch, a parchment and your own little Anthony I think some experiences are better to avoid.
