A defense of yogācāra buddhism

Philosophy East and West 46 (4):447-476 (1996)
It is claimed that misrepresentations of Yogācāra Buddhism appeared in older and later works in India, and then in European and other scholarship. The thesis that Yogācāra denies external existence is rejected, the defense being this Buddhist system's own response. Two major sections divide the argument: (1) The Position of the Yogācārins and (2) Three Clarifications of the Position
