Well, here's his blog, where, if inclined, one can find more of the same.http://a-bas-le-ciel.blogspot.co.uk/
I have to say that I find myself a bit underwhelmed. There is a lot of what passes for academic style and mannerisms, but precious little of substance. The main contention seems to be that there is in the West a willful disregard of some aspects of the Buddha's teachings because the supernaturalist and "non-rational" aspects are somehow inconvenient. I'm sure there are some people who feel this way; but then again, there are many others who don't, so I'm not sure what he is getting at.
