Arnold's book is impressive on many levels. It is a brilliant study of several key figures in the history of medieval Indian thought. It is also a thought-provoking and intelligent exploration of contemporary issues in epistemology and philosophy of religion that makes the potential audience of the book much wider than the relatively small circle of those of who delight themselves by picking their way through the briar patches of difficult Sanskrit and Tibetan texts. Finally, it is a profoundly civilized book, one based on an abundant charity of interpretation that offers thoughtful criticism without any trace of a tone of denigration of the many positions entertained.... A delightfully provocative book. (Richard Hayes Journal of the American Academy of Religion)
Arnold's book has been an instant success, and it is clear that any future work on Dignaga, Candrakirti, and their Hindu rivals will have to take its arguments into account. (Malcolm David Eckel H-Buddhism)
A thoroughly stimulating read for anyone interested in Indian, Buddhist or cross-cultural philosophy. (Douglas Osto The Journal of Religion)
An illuminating and lucidly written study... recommended for anyone interested in the study of religious thought. (Mario D'Amato Religious Studies Review)
Thought-provoking. (Journal of Buddhist Ethics)
