In Buddhism for Thinkers, research psychologist and Buddhist teacher Han de Wit, and young philosopher and historian Jeroen Hopster compare Buddhist tradition and Western philosophy, and analyse both similarities and differences. One difference lies in the inner experience as a source of knowledge. In the West, this inner experience no longer plays a major role in science, whereas for Buddhists it remains important. This also makes Buddhism a source of inspiration for daily living.
