A very close and contextual reading (in translation) of Buddhist "doctrinal" and "philosophical" texts. We will select chapters from Vasubandhu's Treasury of Metaphysics, Nagarjuna's Basis of the Middle Way, and Vasubandhu's Twenty Verses. Attempt to understand these texts on their own terms and in their South Asian contexts, while also inquiring into their significance for the study of Buddhism and religion in South Asia.
