How We Think Mādhyamikas Think: A Response To Tom Tillemans

Tillemans argues, centrally, that the paradoxes of emptiness that we take to be found in Nāgārjuna are best interpreted in a consistent fashion. In our response we take issue with this, arguing that a dialetheic interpretation is more plausible and why. Tillemans also argues that some of the Prajñāpāramitā texts do support a week dialetheism, according to which there are some propositions such that both they and their negations are true, but not the conjunction of these two things. We argue that, in such a case, there is no principled way to resist the truth of the conjunction.
