Bart Dessein UGent and Weijen Teng (2016) Brill's indological library. 50.
abstract
Tekst, History, and Philosophy. Abhidharma across Buddhist Scholastic Traditions discusses Abhidharmma / Abhidharma as a specific exegetical method. In the first part of the volume, the development of the Buddhist argumentative technique is discussed. The second part investigates the importance of the Buddhist rational tradition for the development of Buddhist philosophy. The third part focuses on some peculiar doctrinal issues that resulted from rational Abhidharmic reflections. In this way, an outline of the development of the Abhidharma genre and of Abhidharmic notions and Concepts in India, Central Asia, China, and Tibet from the life time of the historical Buddha to the tenth century CE is given.
