Abstract

Abstract:

According to Taktsang Lotsawa (1405–1477), the two truths of appearance and emptiness can by no means serve as a metaphysical bottom line. The analytic process that their "discovery" sets in motion reveals also their purely heuristic value. The Madhyamaka path is then open-ended, because it admits no incontestable conclusions. Nonetheless, it is also concrete, for the Madhyamaka exercise of reason invites practical application.
