Samenvatting

Tsong khapa (14th-15th centuries) is arguably the most important and influential philosopher in Tibetan history. HisOcean of Reasoning is the most extensive and perhaps the deepest extant commentary on N=ag=arjuna'sM=ulamadhyamakak=arik=a (Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way), and it can be argued that it is impossible to discuss N=ag=arjuna's work in an informed way without consulting it. It discusses alternative readings of the text and prior commentaries and provides a detailed exegesis, constituting a systematic presentation of Madhyamaka Buddhist philosophy. Despite its central importance, however, of Tsong khapa's three most important texts, onlyOcean of Reasoning has until now remained untranslated, perhaps because it is both philosophically and linguistically challenging, demanding a rare combination of abilities on the part of a translator. Jay L. Garfield and Geshe Ngawang Samten bring the requisite skills to this difficult task, combining between them expertise in Western and Indian philosophy, and fluency in Tibetan, Sanskrit, and English. The resulting translation of this important text is not only a landmark contribution to the scholarship of Indian and Tibetan Buddhism, but will be invaluable to students of Tibetan Buddhism and philosophy, who will now be able to read this work alongside N=ag=arjuna's masterpiece.

Recensie(s)

Geshe Ngawang Samten and Jay Garfield have succeeded in making available an invaluable resource for the study of Nagarjuna's Root Verses of the Middle Way and the subsequent development of his philosophy by South Asian and Tibetan thinkers. * Felix Holmgren, TLS * ..accuracy cannot be achieved without elegance, and the translators' awareness of this fact is evident throughout. * TLS *
