Product description

Review

Among this marvelous, wide-ranging collection of essays on the thinking of Madhyamika philosophers will be found insights that will both deepen the understanding of scholars and address the spiritual and ethical concerns of Buddhist practitioners. --Stephen Batchelor, author of After Buddhism"

Tom Tillemans has for decades been a driving force in Buddhist Studies. This collection comprises much of his best work, illuminating with uncommon clarity a range of questions in Buddhist epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language and logic. The insights Tillemans provides are often highly original, and are very profound. The methodology on display should be a model for philosophical engagement with the Buddhist tradition. --Jay Garfield, Smith College"

This is a great addition to the growing field of philosophical studies of the Madhyamaka tradition done by a scholar who combines to the highest degree philological rigor and deep philosophical acumen. This is a great resource, an absolutely must read for anybody who takes Buddhist philosophy to be something more than a historical curiosity. --Georges B. J. Dreyfus, Williams College"

Tillemans nobly essays to come to philosophical terms with Madhyamaka: to take it seriously, to be faithful to its texts and generous in interpreting them, and to provide it a compelling contemporary portrayal. His work is translation of the highest caliber. This volume will stand as an enduring and influential landmarks in Buddhist Philosophy. --Kevin Vose, College of William and Mary"
