What Does Chandrakirti Add to Nagarjuna's Treatise?: Jam-yang-shay-pa's Great Exposition of the Middle: Beginning, 1 by Jules Levinson. December 2015 version

This initial volume looks deeply into two questions: What is the middle that Chandrakīrti’s treatise supplements, and how does it supplement that middle? The book also includes a translation of the Mongolian scholar Ngag-wang-pal-dan’s commentary on the corresponding portions of Chandrakīrti’s Supplement to (Nāgārjuna’s) “Fundamental Treatise on the Middle Called ‘Wisdom’” as well as a translation of the same sections of Tsong-kha-pa’s ground-breaking Illumination of the Thought.
