Format: Hardcover
Nagarjuna is considered the father of Madhyamaka thought and Candrakirti his greatest exponent several centuries, when he clarified misconceptions that had arisen in the intervening four or five centuries. As such this study and translation represents the continuity and - perhaps - timelessness of Madhyamaka thought. In his introduction, Dr. Loizzo explains the contemporary relevance of this thought in light of Wittgenstein and others. Candrakirti's commentary - as Joe admits - is dense and difficult, but it is worth the struggle; the same type of arguments Candrakirti refutes are the types we all bring to the table. So although the translations are enormously useful, the study overall is toward the continuity of Middle Way thought into contemporary practice; this is not simply an artifact. So practitioners need this every bit as much as Buddhist Studies scholars, etc. Do yourself and others a favor and get this book!

The present generation of well-informed translators are doing the world a great service as they continue to bring the great texts of Buddhist philosophy to us. Joseph Loizzo has joined their ranks with this outstanding work. He has contributed an authoritative translation of one of the greatest philosophical works of all time, providing not only a translation, but well-informed commentary that makes it possible for a serious reader to approach this book and reach understanding of a subtle and therefore difficult yet profound river of thought. This book is a great gift to humanity. Thank you.

The translator chose to insert "intrinsic" and "intrinsically" in brackets all over the place when not present in the original text. He hedges like a Gelugpa.
