I'm looking for (electronically accessible) texts concerning buddhist theory of concept formation.
I have Dunnes paper, Ratnakirtis Apohasiddhi and apparently somewhere some snippets of Dignaga, which seem to touch the topic more or less. Are there any other, maybe earlier, texts (specfically) dealing with formation of concepts?
Nice little article: "Perceptual Experience and Concepts in Classical Indian Philosophy"http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/perception-india/
This is right on topic:
"Concepts, Intention, and Identity in Tibetan Philosophy of Language" by Jonathan Stoltz. Journal of the International Association of Buddhist Studies
Volume 29 • Number 2 • 2006 (2008) pp. 383–400
Worth a look:
"Sakya Pandita and the Status of Concepts" by Jonathan Stoltz. Philosophy East & West
Volume 56, Number 4 October 2006 567–582
I'm not familiar with all this material so I can't vouch for it, but you could try:Concept and Reality in Early Buddhist Thought
by Bhikkhu Nanananda.
I can provide you with any and all of these electronically if you have trouble finding.
