Donald S. Lopez Jr. presents a clear and extensive picture of Svatantrika Madhyamika through analysis of issues and positions central to Indian philosophy during the final development of Buddhist thought in India. Central issues are considered: the division of Madhyamika into Svatantrika and Prasangika, the meaning of emptiness, the root cause of suffering, the division of objects of knowledge into the two truths, and the reasoning employed to refute the existence of a self. Included are overviews of Madhyamika in general and Svatantrika in particular.
