The Way of the Modal Realist: Dialetheism and Buddhist Philosophy

The Way of the Modal Realist: Dialetheism and Buddhist Philosophy Abstract: In "The Way of the Dialetheist: Contradictions in Buddhist Philosophy," Deguchi, Garfield, and Priest argue that in some passages of some Buddhist texts contradictions are unambiguously asserted as straightforwardly literally true. It is proposed here to make sense of such assertions by means of a modified version of dialetheism, which says that some contradictions are true at impossible worlds understood within the framework of modal realism. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophy East and West University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

Abstract: In "The Way of the Dialetheist: Contradictions in Buddhist Philosophy," Deguchi, Garfield, and Priest argue that in some passages of some Buddhist texts contradictions are unambiguously asserted as straightforwardly literally true. It is proposed here to make sense of such assertions by means of a modified version of dialetheism, which says that some contradictions are true at impossible worlds understood within the framework of modal realism.
