    Given its vast literature and its practice of teaching what is appropriate
    for a particular disciple, the Buddhist tradition has long had to wrestle
    with the question of which of his many scriptures represented the Buddha's
    highest view. In response to that problem, Buddhist commentators developed
    sophisticated systems of interpretation, Buddhist hermeneutics. The present
    volume of essays by leading Western Buddhologists surveys the rich variety
    of strategies employed by Buddhist thinkers of India, Tibet, China, and
    Japan to interpret their sacred texts.
