The Way of the Modal Realist: Dialetheism and Buddhist Philosophy

From: Philosophy East and West
Volume 63, Number 3, July 2013
pp. 359-369 | 10.1353/pew.2013.0040

It is proposed here to make sense of such assertions by means of a modified version of dialetheism, which says that some contradictions are true at impossible worlds understood within the framework of modal realism.
