In this book, Vasubandhu's classic work Refutation of the Theory of a Self is translated and provided with an introduction and commentary. The translation, the first into a modern Western language from the Sanskrit text, is intended for use by those who wish to begin a careful philosophical study of Indian Buddhist theories of persons. Special features of the introduction and commentary are their extensive explanations of the arguments for the theories of persons of Vasubandhu and the Pudgalavadines, the Buddhist philosophers whose theory is the central target of Vasubandhu's refutation of the theory of a self.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The translation itself (pp. 71-121) is lucid ... [In] Duerlinger's important long commentary ... [e]very nuance of the text is well-explored and analyzed. ... He gives to a classic Indian Buddhist Sanskrit text the sort of critical attention that specialists in Greek philosophy give to Greek philosophical texts. This is a book everyone who studies Indian philosophy should read, and I hope it will become a standard against which other works in the field may be judged.'
- N.H. Satami, Philosophy East & West
