about

This volume collects Jay Garfield's essays on Madhyamaka, Yogacara, Buddhist ethics and cross-cultural hermeneutics. The first part addresses Madhyamaka, supplementing Garfield's translation of Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way (OUP, 1995), a foundational philosophical text by the Buddhistsaint Nagarjuna. Garfield then considers the work of philosophical rivals, and sheds important light on the relation of Nagarjuna's views to other Buddhist and non-Buddhist philosophical positions.
Jay L. Garfield is at University of Massachusetts.

Editorial Reviews

"It represents useful constructive philosophical engagement with Buddhist texts and offers much-needed theoretical and practical reflection on the project of cross-cultural philosophy itself."--The Journal of Religion
