Description - Buddhism and Deconstruction by Dr. Youxuan Wang
This is a semiotic study of a corpus of texts that Kumarajava (344-413 CE), Paramartha (499 569 CE) and Xuanzang (599 664 CE) transmitted from India to China, featuring a critical reading of the Dazhidu Lun (T1509, Maha-Prajaaparamita-upade.a- astra), San Wuxing Lun (T1617, Try-asvabhava-prakara.na), and Guangbai Lun (T1571, Catu.h.ataka-.astra-karika). Focusing its attention on the Mahayana Buddhist notion of samata, it identifies a Buddhist semiotics which anticipates Derrida's invocation of the notion of the Same in his deconstruction of binary oppositions.
