Description About the author
"A masterful treatment of the subject in all aspects. It offers a profound linguistic and - philosophical analysis of the philosophy of Madhyamika in connection with Chi-tsang's Chinese Madhyamika and Yogacara, presented in a clear logical order. It provides a very sound hermeneutic approach by using all the important and relevant primary sources in original languages (Sanskrit, Tibetan, and Chinese), demonstrating the author's solid knowledge of the subject. All the materials are well organized, the difficult terms well translated and explained, and the arguments well supported by textual evidence. This is indeed a scholarly masterpiece. I will be the first instructor to use it as a major text for my graduate seminars and undergraduate courses in Mahayana Buddhism". Charles Wei-hsun Fu Temple University

The Madhyamika philosophy of Nagarjuna articulates the basic Mahayana insights in two themes: the identity of emptiness- dependent co-arising, and the two truths. In The Foundational Standpoint of Madhyamika Philosophy Gadjin M. Nagao, one of the foremost Buddhist scholars in the world, presents an in-depth interpretation of this foundational philosophy of Mahayana Buddhism.
In this book, the author has culled data from Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Western sources, a rare feat which only a few scholars are capable of accomplishing. The translation is faithful, readable, and masterful.
