Early Buddhist Metaphysics: The Making Of A Philosophical Tradition By Noa Ronkin:

“Ronkin employs two main strategies in addition to straightforward exegesis of Buddhist texts. First, she considers the development of Buddhist thought within a wider context of the history of Indian ideas, providing helpful accounts of particular Buddhist ideas in relation to developments in Indian thought more generally, but especially the Vaisesika school. Secondly, she elucidates the general philosophical ideas under discussion –substance, process, events, categories, individuation, causality – by reference to Western philosophical debate both historical and contemporary.
In both these respects her study is a model of academic method and provides an essential resource for anyone interested in the development of Indian Buddhist philosophy. There is no doubt that Noa Ronkin’s book makes an important contribution to the scholarly discussion of these issues, shifting it to a new model of sophistication.”
– Rupert Gethin, University of Bristol – Buddhist Studies Review, Vol. 22, 2005


"The author often uses methods of comparative philosophy of religion and draws on later Buddhist systems of philosophy, non-Buddhist Indian sources and also on achievements of western philosophical inquiries and Buddhological scholarship.]...[ the references...are always well chosen and are good pointers for reflection and stimulants for further research.'- Karel Werner, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London,Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society
