An Introduction to Buddhist Philosophy: An Annotated Translation of the Tarkabhāṣā of Mokṣākaragupta : Reprint with Corrections in the Author's Hand
Arbeitskreis für Tibetische und Buddhistische Studien, Universität Wien, 1966 - Buddhist logic - 173 pages
"Mokṣākaragupta's Tarkabhāṣā is a summary not only of the main theories of the Buddhist tradition of epistemology and logic but also of the main systematic themes to which its theoretical concepts have been applied, and thus constitutes an impressive group of proofs and refutations with a literary history of their own. All proofs of relevance for its own ontology and soteriology as well as the refutations of the main tenets of the Brahmanic philosophical schools are presented here in their principle lines of argument. It is thus a text that is particulary useful as an introduction to the theories and proofs of the epistemological tradition of Dignāga and Dharmakīrti"--Preface.
