About the Book

The Fa Xiang Buddhist theory of objectivity was examined. The said School dictates that appearances possess objectivity insofar as they refer not to external objects but to strata of consciousness which provide materials from which appearances emanate. The Buddhist notion of cognitive object was analyzed. Particularly, the theory of Three Kinds of Object was studied in order to identify (1) the types of cognition accepted in Buddhism, (2) relations of appearances to their bases, and (3) how appearances and their bases interact in the course of development of consciousness. In most mundane consciousness, appearances were identified to be based on Storehouse consciousness, thought not, strictly speaking, determined thereby. Also, it was acknowledged that some appearances could arise without any reference to the Storehouse consciousness and be purely subjective. The investigation culminates in a comprehensive elucidation of what kind of cognition is said to be objective and how they occur.
