Reading the philosophy of Nagarjuna in retrospective, his method of Negation is variously explained in this book. How the application of tetralemmaofour-value structure (catuckot?) would give us enough resources
to expand our thoughts and how that could help us negate the binary either/
or structure of thought that demands theoretical postulations. Notably, the
art of logical negation used by Nagarjuna employing neither/nor structure
would help us understand the Middle Path (Madhyamika) philosophy clearly.
Most of the philosophies use the structure of two-value logical interpretations
to introduce their metaphysics and ethics. Metaphysical conception of soulo
God is the basis of virtue ethics centered on transcendentals of goodness,
truth, beauty, unity, justice, being, etc. of the classical Greeks, later being
followed by Christians, Jews and Islamic thinkers. The conception of atman-
Brahman is the foundation of Vedic philosophersi understanding of
transcendentals as truth (sat), consciousness (cit) and bliss (ananada).
Nagarjuna, on the other hand, employs negative dialectics to confute the
logical structure of either/or that demands metaphysical concepts; and by
employing the four-value logical structure, he introduces the transcendentals
as wisdom and compassion. This book uses Nagarjunian art of negation to
reread his philosophy differently to discern the concept of emptiness (‹µunyata)
as the co-dependent evolution of various elements of the subjective self and
the elements of objective experiences in the dominion of the subjective self;
therein it is possible to redefine no-soul (nairatmya) as self-being, and
idominion of subjectivityi for replacing a metaphysical postulation; and the
transcendentals as wisdom and compassion.
