Those Concepts Proliferate Everywhere: A Response to Constance Kassor

From: Philosophy East and West

Kassor argues that Gorampa, through his account of the ultimate as inexpressible, provides a way to read Nāgārjuna's Madhyamaka consistently, simply by refusing to assert anything about the ultimate. We reply that this simply lands Gorampa and Nāgārjuna back in the paradox of expressibility: we can say nothing about the ultimate, and we have just said it.
