The Context(s) of "Correct Seeing": Truth and Fiction in Tibetan Madhyamaka
Abstract

The fifteenth-century Tibetan scholar Gorampa Sonam Senge argues that the conventional truth (kun rdzob bden pa) can exist in multiple ways depending on its relationship to the minds of beings who apprehend it. This view, which I call relational fictionalism, enables Gorampa to reconcile a number of seemingly conflicting views about what it means to see the world correctly.
