Studies in Abhidharma Literature and the Origins of Buddhist Philosophical Systems: Translated from the German by Sophie Francis Kidd as translator and under the supervision of Ernst Steinkellner as editor
This is a translation of Frauwallner s Abhidharmastudien. It analyzes the literary traditions, doctrinal tendencies, and structural methods of the Buddhist Abhidarma canon in order to expose the beginnings of systematic philosophical thought in Buddhism. Frauwallner s insights illuminate the path of meditation toward liberation, the development of Buddhist psychology, and the evolution of the Buddhist view of causality and the problem of time. He provides a clear explanation of the gradual development of Buddhist thought from its early doctrinal beginning to some of the most complex and remarkable philosophical edifices in history."
