This course is an advanced introduction to the literature of the Madhyamaka school of Buddhist thought in South Asia. Our initial goal is to trace the emergence and development of the Madhyamaka philosophical system as articulated by the school's founders and classical interpreters. The second part of the course will focus on the critical encounters of Madhyamaka writers with other South Asian philosophical traditions. Previous coursework in Buddhist studies or South Asian religions will be helpful, but not necessary.
