Tom McFarlane introduces the teaching of interdependence in Buddhism and other religious traditions, and then illustrates how it can be found in modern science, including how things depend on prior temporal causes, on their context/environment, on their parts, and on conceptual designation. He also elucidates how conceptual designation relates to conventional existence, and explains how interdependence is connected to the teaching of emptiness.
