Description - Empty Words by Jay L. Garfield

"Mulamadhyamakakarika", a 2nd-century philosophical text by the Buddhist saint Nagarjuna, is the foundational text of Mahayana, the Buddhist school that predominates in Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea, Vietnam, and Japan. Nagarjuna is the founder of the "Madhyamaka", or "Middle Path", school of Mahayana. Jay Garfield's translation (with commentary) of this seminal text has established itself as a definitive edition in the English language. "Empty Words" is intended as a companion to Garfield's translation to "The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way", providing additional background, argument and context. It considers the work of philosophical rivals, and sheds important light on the relation of Nagarjuna's views to other Buddhist and non-Buddhist philosophical positions.
