This is an excellent read.
It's also a tough one. The author uses deep academic language -especially at the beginning- but it is really worth learning the terms used. Huntingdon's attempt to strip most current academic ideas about Madhyamaka into dust is pretty fun to read, and edifying for the practitioner. The book has some great one-liners, even if it is a bit rich on quotes from modern philosophy.
If you think that Buddhist Philosophy is similar to Kant or Platonic ideas, read this. If you think that you are a capable academic in the field of Philology, Philosophy, Historiography, or Buddhism, read this!
Actually.. Unless long words are wasted on you, read this!
Garfield writes beautifully about one of the most intimate and challenging Buddhist teachings: emptiness. I felt invited to explore the limits of categorical thinking and move to a more inclusive consciousness. The author also provides an overview of the paramitas, the practice of perfection, which is a vital support for deepening a practice-realization of the dynamic potentiality of emptiness of inherent self-existence.
