Book’s cover and back cover

Juan Arnau conducted research for this volume in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor). Arnau provides a clear and eminently readable interpretation of Nagarjuna’s seminal work, offering those with no prior knowledge of Buddhist philosophy a view into the profound logic of his thought.

Nagarjuna has been central to the work of Buddhist scholars in Asia since his own day. Today, of all the philosophers in the Mahayana tradition, he commands the greatest attention in the Western world.
