Description

From the Jacket

Buddhism is a name given comparatively recently by western scholars to the message given by Gautama who became the Buddha. The teaching of Buddha were known as dharma. It comprises a search for the native of human existence together with a firm commitment to a release from the riddle of suffering associated with it. Therefore it appears to be ingrained in a kind of soteriology. The Buddha found solution to both the issues concerned and the solution offered by him again are interpreted variously by different scholars creating complicated problems. In this book the main endeacour is to analyse the Buddhist philosophical notion such as "ehipassika", nana, pattticcasamuppada, sacca, sanna. Nibbana, to show it richness as an ethical philosophy. The book is divided into 10 chapters. Ch.I; Introduction: The Buddha and Wittgenstein, but, then, why Wittgenstein?; Ch II The later Wittgenstein's Philosophicaltechniques: An Exposition; Ch. III The Dhamma: Its Conceptual structure made explicit; Ch IV: The search for a Meaning-Criterion: Verification; Ch. V 'Truth'(as a model): Is it Falsifiable? Ch. VI: Causality-talk; Ch. VII Facts to Ethics (methodology study 2); Ch. VIII Knoledge and super-perceptual knowledge; Language-games; Ch IX Nibbana-talk and the language-gamel Ch.X The Dhamma: Its family of notions. The book contains an exhaystive Bibliography.
