Abstract This essay endorses the argument of Donald Lopez's Buddhism and Science and shows how the general thesis of the book is consonant with other historical work on the "discovery" of Buddhism and on the emergence of Western conceptions of religion. It asks whether one of the key claims of Buddhism and Science-that Buddhism pays a price for its flirtation with the modern sciences-might be applicable to science-and-religion discussions more generally. © 2010 by the Joint Publication Board of Zygon.
