Interview with Chikako Ozawa De Silva: Mind/Body Theory and Practice in Tibetan Medicine and Buddhism


It is generally accepted that biomedical technology has improved people’s health and well-being. Yet, as body studies has increasingly sought to go beyond existing body/mind conceptualizations, the dispute about the ‘rationalistic concept of the human actor’ (Ozawa-De Silva, 2002) has become a central topic for anthropologists, neuroscientists, media theorists, biologists, sociologists etc.
Exploring further, Tomoko Tamari interviews Chikako Ozawa De Silva on  'Mind/Body Theory and Practice in Tibetan Medicine and Buddhism'.
