About the Author

Jan Westerhoff is Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Durham, United Kingdom.


"This is a marvelous book. It is the first analytical account of N=ag=arjuna's philosophical system as a whole, and is rich in philosophical insight and in scholarship. Westerhoff considers N=ag=arjuna's entire philosophical corpus, as well as a vast array of canonical Indian and Tibetan literature and modern scholarship. His account of N=ag=arjuna's thought and of the literature that has grown around it is philologically rigorous and philosophically astute. He sets N=ag=arjuna's concerns in the context of Indian Buddhist philosophy and makes effective uses the resources of Western philosophy to understand and to explicate his ideas. Essential reading for anyone interested in Buddhist philosophy."--Jay L Garfield, Doris Silbert Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Philosophy, Smith College, and author of Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: N=ag=arjuna's M=ulamadhyamakak=arik=a and Empty Words, translator of Tsong kha pa's Ocean of Reasoning. "...Westerhoff 's is a clear and cogent case for a philosophically sophisticated reading of Madhyamaka"--Dan Arnold, University of Chicago
