A study of selected classical and contemporary Tibetan thinkers who see philosophy as intertwined with religious praxis.

Emphasis is on the central ideas of wisdom, compassion, emptiness, dependent arising, and the two truths in such thinkers as the Prajhaparamita, Nagarjuna, Candrakirti, and the Dalai Lama.
Prerequisites: one course in philosophy or religion or permission of instructor.
