Is Gorampa's "Freedom from Conceptual Proliferations" Dialetheist?

From: Philosophy East and West
Volume 63, Number 3, July 2013
pp. 399-410 | 10.1353/pew.2013.0027



This essay utilizes the philosophy of Gorampa Sonam Senge (Go rams pa bSod nams Seng ge) (1429–1489) to revisit the position put forth by Garfield and Priest, as well as a response to this position by Tillemans, reading Nāgārjuna as a dialetheist. By drawing a distinction between twofold negation at the level of conventional analysis and fourfold negation at the level of ultimate analysis, Gorampa articulates an interpretation of Nāgārjuna that embraces the existence of contradictions without necessarily advocating dialetheism.
