The other day I was reading an article on a site called "The Book of Life". I've discovered that it is an initiative from the School of Life, a project started by Alain de Botton. I read a few things there and when I found this article I felt that it was presenting a wrong view of Buddhist meditation.
The article is here: http://www.thebookoflife.org/philosophical-meditation/
TL;DR: The article says that the "Western" type of Philosophical Meditation is better than the "Eastern" type of meditation. Buddhist meditation teaches you to push down your thoughts and ignore them, while Philosophical Meditation helps you analyze them.
What do you think? Am I misunderstanding the article and reading it the wrong way?
