The Five Skandhas

Traditional Buddhist thought has its own, particular conception of the nature of human epistemology that came to be articulated in a context of meaning and reasoning that was quite different from that which surrounded classical, Greek philosophy or Continental European rationality. In particular, the Buddhist conception of the self makes reference to a progressively constructed hierarchy of human selfness - one in which more complex levels of understanding are stacked on top of the more basic levels, much like a set of childrens' building blocks; these are the five skandhas:


i) Form
ii) Sensation
iii) Perception
iv) Volition
v) Conciousness
