Amod Lele: Buddhaghosa on Seeing Things as They Really Are

A 3-part article. The first two parts have been posted already, while the third is yet to come.

http://indianphilosophyblog.org/2018/04 ... hey-are-1/

http://indianphilosophyblog.org/2018/04 ... hey-are-2/
Here's the third and final part of Lele's defence of his claim that the Theravada commentarial Abhidhamma is an ontological system:

http://indianphilosophyblog.org/2018/05 ... hey-are-3/
Let us now return to the larger picture. What does all this close and technical reading – in this post and the previous two – imply? Each time, we have looked closely at the same passages Heim and Ram-Prasad examine in their article. We have seen all three times that in these very passages Buddhaghosa is concerned not merely with phenomenology – how things appear – but with ontology, how things actually are. The reduction of a person or a chariot into aggregates or name-and-form has to do not merely with one’s inner meditative experience, but with the fact that the person or the chariot actually is made of the reduced elements. Seeing correctly is not a matter of eliminating views, but of having a view that corresponds to things as they are (yathābhūtadassana). And it is by taking that reductionist view, of things as they are, that one sees things in the higher, ultimate, way and not in the lesser way of mere convention. To be liberated from suffering, in Buddhaghosa’s view just as in Śāntideva’s, one must see things as they are; one must perceive reality correctly. One must, that is, be concerned with ontology and metaphysics.
