The Vijnanavadins have long been characterized as believing in an Absolute. Thomas Wood investigates the extent to which this characterization is true. Through a detailed analysis of some of their fundamental texts, Dr. Wood demonstrates that Vijnanavadins were in fact ambivalent and in some cases even inconsistent in their philosophical views on this point. This monograph is directed primarily to scholars of Indian philosophy and religion interested in the schools of Mahayana Buddhism and in its doctrinal relation to Vedanta but with its treatment of philosophical topics of universal interest-idealism, solipsism, the nature of the inference to other minds it is of interest to Western and comparative scholars as well.
