<p>Abstract:</p><p>This essay seeks to explain the somewhat paradoxical YogÄcÄra Buddhist view of the possibility of non-conceptual language use (under what is called 'subsequent awareness', tatpá¹á¹£á¹halabdhajÃ±Äna). The essay unpacks the school's understanding of non-conceptuality, drawing extensively on contemporary non-conceptualist theory, as well as on conceptualist accounts that are referred to here as "inclusivist." It is argued that the inclusivists' proposal that we view conceptual articulation itself as a form of practical-skillful action presents some intriguing affinities (but also important disaffinities) with the YogÄcÄra conception of language use, and takes us some way toward understanding what a concept is for a YogÄcÄra Buddhist.</p>
