A Distant Mirror: Articulating Indic Ideas in Sixth and Seventh Century Chinese Buddhism
Chen-kuo Lin and Michael Radich (eds.), Hamburg University Press, 2014.

In this book, an international team of fourteen scholars investigates the Chinese reception of Indian Buddhist ideas, especially in the sixth and seventh centuries. Topics include Buddhist logic and epistemology (pramāṇa, yinming); commentaries on Indian Buddhist texts; Chinese readings of systems as diverse as Madhyamaka, Yogācāra and tathāgatagarbha; the working out of Indian concepts and problematics in new Chinese works; and previously under-studied Chinese evidence for developments in India. The authors aim to consider the ways that these Chinese materials might furnish evidence of broader Buddhist trends, thereby problematizing a prevalent notion of “sinification”, which has led scholars to consider such materials predominantly in terms of trends ostensibly distinctive to China. The volume also tries to go beyond seeing sixth- and seventh-century China primarily as the age of the formation and establishment of the Chinese Buddhist “schools”. The authors attempt to view the ideas under study on their own terms, as valid Buddhist ideas engendered in a rich, “liminal” space of interchange between two large traditions.

Momentary Dharmas, Momentary Persons: Kuiji's窺基 Arguments for Non-Self

Ernest Billings (Billy) Brewster (Harvard University)

時間:2014年6月13日(五)上午 11AM
地點:政治大學山上校區 百年樓 哲學系330227室

The existence or non-existence of persons was the cardinal issue in dispute within the rationalistic tradition of Buddhist-Brāhmaṇical debate. Historically, Xuánzàng’s 玄奘(602-664Treatise Proving Consciousness-Only (* Vijñaptimātrasiddhi-śāstra; Cheng weishi lun《成唯識論》) is of considerable importance because it contains crucial early materials documenting the Buddhist-Brāhmaṇical debate up to the 7th century, an important period which is under-documented in the available Sanskrit sources. The only direct commentaries on the Cheng weishi lun by Xuanzang’s disciple, Kuījī 窺基(632-682 C.E.), are also of considerable historical interest in that they contain a wealth of material on the arguments of the Sāṅkhya (數論), Vaiśeṣika(衛世; 勝論; 吠世史迦) Jaina, and Śaiva (i.e., Paśupata 獸主and Parivrājaka 波利呾羅拘迦) interlocutors (pūrvapakṣins) represented in the Cheng weishi lun. Philosophically, Kuījī’s Recorded Explanations on the Treatise Proving Consciousness Only (Vijñaptimātra-siddhi-śāstra)《成唯識論述記》and Essentials of the Treatise Proving Consciousness-Only in the Palm of the Hand《成唯識論掌中樞要》are of particular interest in that his arguments against these views of Self are constructed in the form of formal inferences, composed of subject-locus (pakṣa), reason (hetu), and example (dṛṣṭānta). In this paper, I investigate Kuiji’s exegesis on the first section of the Cheng weishi lun in order to clarify a number of puzzling passages dealing with the diverse doctrinal theories of the rival traditions.

The Formation of the Abhidhamma Commentary

Lance Cousins
University of Oxford


After presenting some background on the Pali commentarial literature and the School of Buddhaghosa, I turn to the Pali Aṭṭhakathā literature in a little more detail and then discuss the authorship of the Abhidhamma commentary. The main part of this paper, however, is concerned with the first part of that commentary, the Aṭṭhasālinī. I examine this work from the point of view of its sources. It can be clearly shown that it is largely taken from the Abhidhamma section of the Mah'-aṭṭhakathā, mostly verbatim — a work dating probably from the late third century A.D. in the form utilized by our author/editor. That work itself, however, was largely a compilation and contains large sections that have been adopted in toto from one or more separate late second century sources as well as earlier commentarial matter from one or more commentaries on the Dhammasaṅgaṇi.

Ganeri, Jonardon. 2012. The self: naturalism, consciousness, and the first-person stance. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Chapter 7 & 8.

About the book:
What is it to occupy a first-person stance? Is the first-personal idea one has of oneself in conflict with the idea of oneself as a physical being? How, if there is a conflict, is it to be resolved? The Self recommends a new way to approach those questions, finding inspiration in theories about consciousness and mind in first millennial India. These philosophers do not regard the first-person stance as in conflict with the natural — their idea of nature is not that of scientific naturalism, but rather a liberal naturalism non-exclusive of the normative.

Workshop on “Buddhist Logic and Epistemology in Chinese Sources”

Date: 2012/10/12-13
Venue: National Chengchi University, Taipei
Chen-kuo Lin 林鎮國 (National Chengchi University, Taiwan)

Comparing the attention to the Sanskrit and the Tibetan sources, the Chinese texts and commentaries in the studies of Buddhist logic and epistemology have been largely neglected. Such negligence prevents us having a fair picture of the development of Buddhist logic and epistemology as a whole. In order to fill the gap of our knowledge in this regard, it is the aim of this workshop to lay down a preliminary ground for the study of Buddhist logic and epistemology in the Chinese sources. In this workshop, we will focus on some of the texts which are most essential in this field, while the main philosophical issues are also on the agenda of exploration. This workshop is publication-oriented.

Stairway to Nirvāṇa: A Structural Analysis of the Twenty Saṃghas

Prof. James B. Apple
Department of Religious Studies, University of Calgary

時間:2012年 5月 28日(一)下午3 - 5 時
地點:政治大學山上校區 百年樓二樓 宗教所會議室(330211)

Abstract 演講摘要:


The Twenty Varieties of the Saṃgha (Tib. dge ’dun nyi shu) is one of the most formative subjects in traditional Tibetan Buddhist studies. The Saṃgha is one of the Three Jewels (‘Buddha, Dharma, Saṃgha’) universally revered by all Buddhists and is comprised of the ideal community of Noble Persons who embody the Buddha’s teachings. The Twenty Saṃghas enumerates all the possible stages through which any given individual might pass, depending upon factors such as that individual’s cosmological circumstances, the acuity of his or her faculties, and the individual’s degree of meditative cultivation and cognitive insight. This presentation centers on the interpretation of the Saṃgha given by the 14th century Tibetan scholar Tsong-kha-pa blo-bzang grags-pa. The presentation provides an overview of the importance of the Twenty Saṃghas in Tibetan Buddhist culture and a structural analysis of the topic’s overall content.

John Taber 教授為國際知名之研究中世紀前期印度哲學的專家,尤其專精彌曼沙(Mīmāṃsā)學派最重要的哲學家Kumārila Bhaṭṭa (七世紀)以及不二吠檀多學派(Advaita Vedānta)。在佛教哲學方面,則特別擅長佛教知識論傳統,包括世親、陳那、法稱等,同時兼治佛教與婆羅門哲學間的論辯與對話。其專著《A Hindu critique of Buddhist epistemology: Kumārila on Perception. The "Determination of perception" chapter of Kumārila Bhaṭṭa's Ślokavārttika, translation and commentary》以及多篇學術論文,蜚聲國際。

Parimal G. Patil 教授為年輕一輩印度哲學學者中的佼佼者,專研中世紀後期印度哲學,尤其是在7-11世紀以 Jñānaśrīmitra 與 Ratnakīrti 為首的佛教哲學家與印度教哲學家之間的論辯。其兩本專著《Against a Hindu God: Buddhist Philosophy of Religion in India》與《Buddhist Philosophy of Language in India: Jñānaśrīmitra on Exclusion》已經成為此領域的代表作。此外,Patil 教授也特別關心哲學取徑在宗教研究中的定位,並嘗試回答哲學研究如何對宗教研究做出貢獻的問題。
