Buddhism, knowledge and liberation: a philosophical study
Buddhism, Knowledge and Liberation assesses the common Buddhist idea that knowledge of the three characteristics of existence (impermanence, not-self and suffering) is the key to liberation. It argues that this claim must be seen in the context of the Buddhist path and training as a whole. Sensitive to the wide diversity of philosophical perspectives and interpretation that Buddhism has engendered, this book makes a serious contribution to critical and philosophically aware engagement with Buddhist thought.
