1997 0-7734-8615-1
In his Sataka Commentary, the Yogacara philosopher Dharmapala levels the earliest explicit critique of Madhyamika notions of emptiness, arguing that his Yogacara interpretation is preferable, because it avoids the nihilistic implications of the Madhyamika, and affirms the other-dependent validity of language and reason. He specifically takes aim at the Madhyamika philosopher Bhavaviveka, refuting his previous criticisms of the Yogacara thinkers.
