                                      Contemporary Buddhism publishes articles on the current state of
                                      Buddhism from across the human sciences. The journal presents work
                                      from philosophers, theologians, historians, psychologists, anthropologists,
                                      sociologists and political scientists. Contemporary Buddhism examines
                                      the historical, doctrinal and political developments that have formed
                                      contemporary versions of Buddhism. Contemporary Buddhism is intended
                                      to reflect and represent all schools of Buddhism.
