Aristotle, Nagarjuna and the Law of Non-Contradiction in Buddhist Philosophy

Abstract

There is a widespread view that Buddhist philosophy embodies logical contradictions such that there would be 'true' contradictions, This article explains that this is not the case and that Buddhist philosophy, more generally the Perennial philosophy, denies all contradictions for the sake of a doctrine of Unity.
