Detail: The book 'The Framework of Nagarjuna's philosophy' is an attempt to reconstruct a better understanding of Nagarjuna's philosophy in a novel way. It is a new and somewhat unconven­tional way of looking at Nagara­juna's philosophy. The work is carried out by strictly adhering to original sanskrit text-Madhyamaka Sastra. The author has dealt with three impor­tant concepts viz. Pratitya Samut­pada,Sunyata and Nirvana which are considered to be highly techni­cal, philosophically rich and intelle­ctually rewarding as pillars of Nagarajuna's philosophical position viz. Madhyama Pratipad. By analysing these three concepts, the author shows that intricate line of Nagarjuna's reasoning is woven around them. The author further shows that the teaching of the Buddha and thereby path between two extreme positions adopted in this regard on any level of understanding. It is the contention I of the author that the meaning of Madhyama marga can be understood only by proper understanding interrelation between Pratitya Samutpada, Sunyata and Nirvana as distinct from its simplistic interpretation in vogue. This book, it is hoped, will be a good contribution to the field of Indian philosophy in general and classical Buddhist philosophy in particular.
