The Moon Points Back: Review at NDPR

Over at NDPR, Mark Siderits reviews The Moon Points Back, an edited volume by the Cowherds (Koji Tanaka, Yasuo Deguchi, Jay Garfield and Graham Priest).

From the review:

The papers illustrate the relative maturity and fruitfulness of a project that Garfield characterizes as ‘the attempt to address serious philosophical problems, of interest in their own right, some arising from the Buddhist tradition itself, some from the West, in conversation with the Buddhist tradition’ (246).

Siderits focuses on three relative newcomers to the field in the critical portion of his essay: Ricki Bliss (Lehigh University), Amber D. Carpenter (University of York/Yale-NUS College), and Laura Guerrero (Utah Valley State University), who take up, respectively, Madhyamaka critiques of causation, Buddhist debates about persons, and Madhyamaka semantics.
