Joseph Walser provides the first examination of Nagarjuna's life
and writings in the context of the religious and monastic debates
of the second century CE. Walser explores how Nagarjuna secured the
canonical authority of Mahayana teachings and considers his use of
rhetoric to ensure the transmission of his writings by Buddhist
monks. Drawing on close textual analysis of Nagarjuna's writings
and other Buddhist and non-Buddhist sources, Walser offers an
original contribution to the understanding of Nagarjuna and the
early history of Buddhism.
