Fair and unfair language

No time to write something today, so here's another link to academia.edu: "Fair and unfair language games in Chan/Zen", by Bernard Faure. From the conclusion (spoilers!):

Certainly in my case I had (and if I am honest, probably still have) more interest in the rhetoric of Zen than, you know, the other stuff.
