Stephen Batchelor

Stephen Batchelor

STEPHEN BATCHELOR is a contemporary Buddhist teacher and writer, best known for his secular or agnostic approach to Buddhism. Stephen considers Buddhism to be a constantly evolving culture of awakening rather than a religious system based on immutable dogmas and beliefs. Through his writings, translations and teaching, Stephen engages in a critical exploration of Buddhism’s role in the modern world.

He is the translator and author of various books and articles on Buddhism including the bestselling Buddhism Without Beliefs (Riverhead 1997) and Living with the Devil: A Meditation on Good and Evil (Riverhead, 2004). His most recent publication is After Buddhism: Rethinking the Dharma for a Secular Age (Yale University Press, 2015).
