Dukkha, Inaction, and Nirvana: Suffering, Weariness, and Death?
A look at Nietzsche's Criticisms of Buddhist Philosophy
By Omar Moad
Comparisons between Buddhism and the various schools of existentialism have revealed a number of parallels. Such studies have frequently centered on each tradition's metaphysical approach and the fact that they all appear to share some form of phenomenological methodology. In the area of ethics, however, existentialism and Buddhism generally seem to differ radically. This difference is the most marked in the case of Nietzsche.
