Buddhist Philosophy: 4 noble truths, dependent origination

Order Description

choose two out of a number of possible questions, and to write short essays in response to each question.

Making a short outline or list of points for yourself before writing is often helpful.

2) Sue Hamilton, Indian Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2001).
