About the Author

Jan Westerhoff was educated at Cambridge and the School of Oriental and African Studies. He has taught Philosophy at the Universities of Oxford and Durham and is presently Professor of Buddhist Philosophy at the University of Oxford, Fellow and Tutor in Theology and Religion at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, and a Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. His books include Ontological Categories (2005), Nagarjuna's Madhyamaka (2009), Twelve Examples of Illusion (2010), The Dispeller of Disputes: Nagarjuna's Vigrahavyavartani (2010), and A Very Short Introduction to Reality (2011), all published by Oxford University Press.


Jan Westerhoff's book is an ambitious and thorough addition to The Oxford History of Philosophy series. This book, written by an eminent specialist in the field of Buddhist philosophy, serves as an advanced introduction to a fertile period of philosophy * Ethan Mills, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
This book may be transformational for Western scholars, because in it Westerhoff stresses the overemphasis on Indian Buddhist philosophy of the classical era and settles Nagarjuna into a richer philosophical community in the Golden Age. The overall journey of this rigorous study is noteworthy: it flows well throughout, thanks in part to the organization of the ideas... Summing Up: Highly Recommended. * CHOICE *
An excellent new history of Buddhist philosophy in India... very readable... in the sense of focusing on essentials, without attempting to go into too many details. * Chivan Thomas Jones, Western Buddhist Review *
The detailed table of contents and main idea phrases in the margins aid both reference and focus. This reviewer anticipates that this book will be much cited in future scholarship and teaching. * D P Prianti, Choice *
