  1. A Buddhist Epistemological Framework for Mindfulness Meditation.Monima Chadha - 2015 - Asian Philosophy 25 (1):65-80.

The first task in the paper is to answer the question: what is the “self” that the Buddhists are denying? To answer this question, I look at the Abhidharma arguments for the No-Self doctrine and then work back to an interpretation of the self that is the target of such a doctrine. I argue that Buddhists (...)
