This chapter analyzes Nāgārjuna’s arguments against the existence of the substantial self. Many of these, in particular those dealing with the self and its parts will be familiar to readers of Buddhist philosophical literature. One, however, dealing with the self and its properties has a distinctly Nāgārjunian flavour. After discussing the epistemology of the self an alternative to the substantial view of the self, called a ‘process-self’ is introduced.

Keywords:   self, substantial self, process-self, subjective
