Abstract

This essay is an analysis of Dōgen's commentary on "Nan-ch'üan's Cutting of the Cat" as found in section 1.6 of the Shōbōgenzō Zuimonki. It argues that Dōgen's conception of hishiryō ("without-thinking") is the starting point for understanding Dōgen's moral vision, and employs this idea in the interpretation of the passage
