This volume collects Jay Garfield's essays on Madhyamaka, Yog-ac-ara, 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 Buddhist saint 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.
"Mulamadhyamakakarika", a 2nd-century philosophical text by the Buddhist saint Nagarjuna, is the foundational text of Mahayana, the Buddhist "Middle Path". This text is intended as a companion to "The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way", providing additional background, argument and context.
