This book is a study of the Mulamadhyamakakarika (Middle Stanzas), the chief work of Nagarjuna (2nd-3rd cent.), who established the theoretical foundations of Mahayana Buddhism and is known in Japan as "the founder of the eight Sects." The Middle Stanzas is a treatise that integrates the concepts of dependent co-arising (Pratityasamutpada) and emptiness (Sunyata), fundamental to the thought of Mahayana Buddhism, but the manner in which Nagarjuna develops his arguments is unusual and the middle Stanzas has acquired a reputation as a difficult work. The present book attempts to elucidate the distinctive and abstruse arguments presented in the Middle Stanzas by means of an original method not previously used in this context.In addition to its examination of the logic of emptiness, this book also aims to explore the idea of emptiness from the perspective of religious studies. That is to say, the author seeks to situate the intuitive wisdom of emptiness within the full compass of religious experiences. Towards this end, he employs the concepts of "the sacred" and "the profane," basic concepts in the field of religious studies, and proposes a method for considering the experience of the wisdom of emptiness within the same framework as Tantric practices such as mandala visualization and group rituals such as funeral rites. MUSASHI TACHIKAWA formerly taught at Nagoya University and is new professor at the National Museum of Ethnology in Osaka, Japan. His publication include The Structure of the World of Udayana`s Realism and "A Hindu Worship Service in Sixteen Steps, Shodasa-upacarapuja. I found An Introduction to the Philosophy of Nagarjuna to be a stimulating and enjoyable study... The book is well-produced... Rolf W. Giebel should be congratulated. D.F. BURTON The book needs to be studied carefully and profitably by those interested in Nagarjuna`s and Buddhist Philosophy. MANGALA R. CHINCHORE "......first study of Buddhism by this formidable scholar to be made available in English & it is greatly to be welcomed by buddhologists who cannot read the original Japanese.........is densely packed with charts, diagrams and grammtical notes......readers enjoy what must now be considered an "old world" dedication to editing & publication." -----------Journal of the American Oriental Society 123.3 (2003)
