Kevin Vose

Kevin Vose is a professor of religious studies at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. He received his PhD in Buddhist studies from the University of Virginia. His research examines the interplay of late-Indian and early-Tibetan Madhyamaka and the formation of Tibetan scholasticism.

Professor Vose's current research concerns a thirty-volume collection of recently discovered Tibetan manuscripts from the Kadampa (bka' gdams pa) order. These manuscripts were recovered from one of the few monastic libraries to survive the Cultural Revolution in Tibet. Within this collection, he's examining several eleventh- and twelfth-century texts pertaining to the formation of Tibetan Madhyamaka ("Middle Way") philosophy.

His first monograph was Resurrecting Candrakirti: Disputes in the Tibetan Creation of Prasangika. Boston: Wisdom Publications, 2008. (Source Accessed March 25, 2020)
