This is part of a series of articles on writers and speakers who I believe have important things to say to the Buddhist community and others.
I have enjoyed the work of David Loy for quite some time. His ability to apply Buddhist principles to the great problems of the world is inspired and his breadth of knowledge as well as skill with analysis makes his work sometimes surprising and always interesting.
The links I’ve collected are a mix of academic and popular writings from the past 20 years of so of this amazing man’s work.
