Bibliography on Ch’an Buddhism in China

Thursday 29 January 2009

Langues :

By Robert B. Zeuschner

Journal of Chinese Philosophy V. 3 (1976), pp. 299-311
Copyright 1976 by D. Reidel Publishing Company, Dordrecht-Holland

This bibliography is limited to the more important studies and translations devoted to the Chinese school of Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism. Consequently materials which concentrate exclusively upon the Japanese Zen school are not included. Although this bibliography is mainly devoted to writings on Ch’an in Western languages, a great number of extremely important critical works on Chinese Ch’an texts and thought is found in contemporary Japanese studies. For this reason we have included some of the best studies from this enormous field of literature.

Entries marked with an asterisk* are considered to be of exceptional value or interest.
