2012 (English)In: Journal of Indian Philosophy, ISSN 0022-1791, E-ISSN 1573-0395, Vol. 40, no 4, 371-394 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The publication deals with topics concerning the interpretation of the VigrahavyAvartanA << in as much as they are relevant for the understanding of (early) Madhyamaka-philosophy in general. A major part of the article is dedicated to a critical assessment of a number of views which have been propagated recently in a paper by Sharma (In: Nagoya studies in Indian culture and Buddhism, Saa(1)integral bhAa(1)A pound, 2011). A primary goal of the present investigation consists in substantiating the claim that early Madhyamaka represents a metaphysical teaching which stands in sharp contrast not only to stances of common sense but also to tenets propagated in Buddhist dogmatics.
