Tibetan Mādhyamikas devote considerable attention to debates concerning the object of negation (Tib. dgag bya) in deconstructive Madhyamaka analysis. This chapter argues that this attention is warranted because any account of conventional truth depends upon an account of the object of negation. The chapter focuses on the debate between Tsongkhapa and Gorampa regarding whether the object of negation is intrinsic nature or existence.
