Batchelor

Flight is an essay I wrote shortly after I arrived in South Korea in 1981. It further develops the existentialist approach to Buddhism presented in my first book Alone with Others, which I had completed the previous year in Hamburg, but would not be published until 1983.  Flight was first published by the Buddhist Publication Society in Kandy, Sri Lanka, as a “Wheel” booklet in 1984.  In the German and Dutch editions of Alone with Others, a translation of Flight is included as an appendix.
