Situating Narrative and Systematic Accounts of Wisdom


/Review: Steven Collins, Wisdom as a Way of Life: Theravāda Buddhism Reimagined (Columbia University Press, 2020), 304 pages./

Steven Collins was in the process of finalizing his manuscript and final academic work on Buddhism when he passed away unexpectedly at the age of sixty-six in February 2018. Although unfinished, the manuscript was in circulation among his colleagues and was near to completion. The final published version suffers hardly at all except for a somewhat abrupt end that one imagines would have seen a few more pages added to put a bow on a capstone project to a life of excellent research and truly entertaining composition.
