Description
 
This book 'The Framework of Nagarjuna's Philosophy' is an attempt to reconstruct a better understanding of Nagarjuna's philosophy in a novel way. It is anew and somewhat unconventional way of looking at Nagarjuna's philosophy.
The work is carried out strictly adhering to original Sanskrit text-Madhyamaka Sastra. The author has dealt with three important concepts viz. Pratitya Samutpada, Sunyata and Nirvana which are considered to be highly technically, philosophically rich and intellectually rewarding as pillars of Nagarjuna's philosophical position viz. Madhyama Pratipad. By analyzing these three concepts the author shows that intricate line of Nagarjuna's reasoning is woven around them. The author further shows that the teaching of the Buddha and thereby path between two extreme positions adopted in this regard on any level of understanding. It is the contention of the author that the meaning of Madhyama marga can be understood only by proper understanding interrelation between Pratitya Samutpada, Sunyata and Nirvana as distinct from its simplistic interpretation in vogue. This book, it is hoped, will be a good contribution to the field of Indian philosophy in general and classical Buddhist philosophy in particular.

Framework of Nagarjuna's Philosophy, A.M. Pahye, Sri Satguru, 150 pp., $17.50.
