"The Neural Buddhists" by David Brooks

David Brooks article "The Neural Buddhists" (click here) suggests the return of the exiled metanarratives with a bang. Behind the Hegelian metanarrative, or undergirding it, might be lurking a real material, neural one on which the experience of the universal could be standing. It is new discoveries we are heading toward. New "recoveries", probably. For Buddhism has all along visualised the various "invisiblities" as different grades and kinds of materialities.
