Notes

Abstract: This comparative thesis is intended to demonstrate the shortcomings in T.R.V. Murti�s pioneering analysis of Nagarjuna�s thought, which he then compared with the works of Immanuel Kant. The shortcomings of Murti�s analysis are due partially to his assumption that certain concepts in Nagarjuna�s thought are similar to what is familiar to him from his study of Advaita Vedanta (a Hindu monistic, theistic system). T.R.V. Murti makes an important error when discussing the Tathagata as God that renders his argument unsound. I chose to compare Kant with Je Tsong-kha-pa (who follows Nagarjuna�s system) in order to demonstrate such errors of hermeneutical analysis. Both Je Tsong-kha-pa and Kant regarded their systems as the only rational approach to the problem of scriptural interpretation. Thus a fruitful comparison is based on the correct hermeneutical approach when embarking on such analysis.
