Title: God and Emptiness: A Reconcilement? An Inquiry into the Meditative Thought of Spinoza and Nagarjuna
Author: Rak, Gregory D.
Department: Haverford College. Dept. of Philosophy
Type: Thesis (B.A.)
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: This thesis will explore the possibilities of opening the two world views of Spinoza and Nagarjuna to some form of comparison. In the Ethics, Spinoza describes reality as infinite substance, as God, as just the way it is. In the Mulamadhyamakakarika, Nagarjuna argues that everything in the world is empty, that is, empty of inherent existence.
