About the Book:
Middle-way Buddhism (Madhyamaka) tells us that nothing has inherent nature: all things are śūnya, empty of their own nature, and therefore they manifest as bundles of relations instead of being independently identifiable objects. In this book, we examine physical phenomena to determine whether that tenet stands under scrutiny by modern standards of Western philosophy and logic, philosophy of science and physics. Volume 1 is introductory, yet still develops detailed nuances in all relevant topics, while Volume 2 gets deep into the weeds of academic controversies.

About the Author

Robert Alan Paul has been a practicing Buddhist in the Kagyu, Nyingma and Shambhala lineages for more than 40 years. He also was a practicing physicist for 20 years and science educator for 20 more. He has master’s degrees in physics, mathematics and philosophy, and holds an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in physics, Western analytic philosophy, philosophy of science, and Madhyamaka.
