Description
 
From its inception, Buddhist philosophy has been concerned with defining and overcoming the limitations and errors of ordinary perception. To do this was essential to Buddhism's central purpose of establishing a path and method for attaining liberation. Conceptual thought, in this view, is capable of leading to a liberating understanding, a transformative religious experience.
The author discusses the workings of both direct and conceptual cognition, drawing on variety of newly translated Tibetan and Indian texts. This book is indispensable for anyone desiring a deeper understanding of the fundamental issues current in modern Western philosophy.
The Gelukba interpretation of Dignaga and Dharmakirti is greatly at variance with virtually all other scholarship concerning these seminal Buddhist logicians. The author clarifies these differences, considering both traditional Buddhist and modern scholarship, thus establishing what is unique to the Gelukba presentation and, in this light, examining reasons for the validity of this school's interpretation.
