Description

Jan Westerhoff unfolds the story of one of the richest episodes in the history of Indian thought, the development of Buddhist philosophy during the first millennium CE. He investigates the cultural and intellectual factors that influenced and changed Buddhist philosophical thought (such as internal Buddhist debates and debates with Hindu thinkers, varying interpretations of texts, the development of meditative techniques), and traces the continuing themes, stressing how many apparently new developments can be seen as being present in the form of conceptual seeds in the earliest texts of Buddhism. His aim is that the historical presentation will also allow the reader to get a better systematic grasp of key Buddhist concepts such as non-self, suffering, reincarnation, karma, and nirvana.
