What the Buddha Thought - Richard Gombrich

Richard Gombrich
Oxford University


We have seen in Chapter 5 that the Vedic tradition blended (from our perspective: confused) ontology, the question of what exists, with epistemology, the question of what we can know, and how. We have also seen there and in Chapter 8 that the Buddha argued against positing a category of ´being´, and altogether substituted for the question ´What exists?´ the question ´What can we experience?´
