«Heine's scholarly examination of the difficult matter of aesthetics and Zen covers a great deal of ground in considerable
detail.» (David Pollack, The Journal of Asian Studies) «(T)his pioneering though condensed study by a specialist well-acquainted
both with Soto Zen and with traditional Japanese aesthetics should be applauded by students in all fields of Japanese culture,
literature, and religion. At the same time it provides new perspectives for Dogen studies as well.» (Alexander M. Kabanoff,
Journal of Japanese Studies)
