Nagao's insights have been valued by Japanese scholars all along and only recently have Western scholars appreciated them. This offers a complete picture of his novel deliberations, showing a first-rate thinker at work." -- Kenneth Inada, State University of New York, Buffalo "Professor Nagao is one of the most respected scholars in Buddhism, especially in Yogacara. His detailed treatment of each of the themes combined with a careful linguistic analysis of Buddhist philosophical concepts sheds much light on Buddhist doctrines." -- David J. Kalupahana, University of Hawaii "The author's strength in philological discipline and knowledge is manifest. The height of his philosophical achievement may be glimpsed in the chapter entitled: The Logic of Convertibility, which explicates the dialectical structure underlying the Madhyamika and Yogacara systems." -- Shohei Ichimura, Institute of Buddhist Studies, Berkeley, California.
