The Buddhist school Madhyamika is one of the most important philosophical schools in India. It was founded by the great thinker Nagarjuna in the second century A.D. His doctrine is centred around the concept of Sunyata or Voidness which metaphorically designates the absolute existance of an own being, i.e. of any substance existing in se et per se. The present edition contains 4 fundamentals texts of that school, three by Nagarjuna and one by his disciple Aryadeva.
Fernando Tola and Carmen Dragonetti have been professors in the National Universities of san Marcos (Lima, Peru) and Buenos Aries (Argentina). They undertook investigation work of the National Council for scientific Research (CONICET) of Argentina in the area of Indian Philosophy. They were Vice President and President respectively of the Institute of Buddhist studies foundation (FIEB); directors of the Revista de Estudios Budistas (Journal of buddhist studies) REB, edited in Mexico; and Overseas Research fellows of The International Institute for buddhist Studies (Tokyo).
