Towards a Tibetan Buddhist philosophy of language

Dorji Wangchuk (Hamburg)

This lecture will discuss Tibetan Buddhist philosophy of language, by considering six points, namely: (1) the ontology of language; (2) a typology of language; (3) a technology (or mechanism) of language; (4) language in the context of Buddhist ontology; (5) language in the context of Buddhist axiology (i.e. theory of values); and (6) language in the context of Buddhist logic and epistemology. This will be done by resorting to random writings of Tibetan Buddhist scholars.
