In every one case the point of interest is on philosophical difficulties; in each one case the connections among Buddhist and modern Western debates are addressed, as are the distinct contributions that the Buddhist culture could make to Western discussions.

"Garfield has a distinct expertise for rendering abstruse philosophical ideas in ways in which cause them to effortless to understand. this can be a big ebook, one who can profitably be learn through students of Western and non-Western philosophy, together with experts in Buddhist philosophy. this can be in my estimation crucial paintings on Buddhist philosophy in contemporary reminiscence.
