On Voidness: A Study on Buddhist Nihilism

 
Carmen Dragonetti (Author) Fernando Tola (Author) Buddhist Tradition Series
Synopsis

The Buddhist school Madhyamika is one of the most important philosophical schools in India. It was founded by the great thinker Nagarjuna in the second century A.D. His doctrine is centered around the concept of sunyata or Voidness which metaphorically designates the absolute inexistence of an own being i.e. of any substance existing in se et per se.

The present edition contains four fundamental texts of that school, three by Nagarjuna and one by his disciple Aryadeva. Among the selected texts there is the famous Catuhstava. They give a clear idea of the essential ideas of Nagarjuna and his school. The book presents the texts in their original versions (Sanskrit or Tibetan) with their English translations and several doctrinary studies.
