Nancy McCagney is assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Delaware.
McCagney's work offers a detailed exposition and challenging interpretation of Nagarjuna's ideas.
— International Journal of Hindu Studies
This is an interesting and valuable addition to the steadily growing corpus of literature on Nagarjuna, the celebrated Madhyamaka Buddhist philosopher and patriarch. The distinguishing contribution of McCagney to our understanding of Nagarjuna's philosophy is her detailed and painstaking investigation into the early Buddhist and Mahayana backgrounds of Madhyamaka school....This fine work will benefit all students of Madhyamaka....Excellent bibliography and copious notes. Upper-division undergraduate; graduate; faculty.
