Riassunto: Throughout the history of Buddhism, few philosophers have attained the stature of Dharmakirti, the "Lord of Reason" who has influenced virtually every systematic Buddhist thinker since his time.
Dharmakirti's renowned works, written in India during the philosophically rich seventh century, argue that the true test of knowledge is its efficacy, and likewise that only the efficacious is knowable and real. Around this central theme is woven an intricate web of interrelated theories concerning perception, reason, language, and the justification of knowledge. Masterfully unpacking these foundations of Dharmakirti's system, John Dunne presents the first major study of the most vexing issues in Dharmakirti's thought within its Indian philosophical context. Lucid and carefully argued, Dunne's work serves both as an introduction to Dharmakirti for students of Buddhism and a groundbreaking resource for scholars of Buddhist thought.
Sinossi: Foundations of Dharmakirti's Philosophy is part of Wisdom's acclaimed Studies in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism series. Dharmakirti is a central figure in the history of Buddhist philosophy. John Dunne's extraordinary work of scholarship illuminates the body of Dharmakirti's work which has profoundly influenced Mahayana Buddhism and South Asian philosophy.
