Abstract

Abstract:

This article explores the nature of limits in relation to different but complementary notions of pain, namely those in the philosophies of Martin Heidegger and Madhyamaka Buddhism. By studying these conceptions alongside one another, we find that the subjective experience of suff ering is an infelicitous way of inhabiting our porous limits, which hold us between the spaces of our finite selves and our unbounded world.
