Early Buddhist Theory of Knowledge, by K.N. Jayatilleke

David Kalupahana, a student of Jayatilleke, expanded on a theme of empirical knowledge found in the Sabbasutta (SN. 35.23), with comparison to Nikāya and Āgama versions, not cited in Jayatilleke's work:

A Tract on Empiricism, by D.J. Kalupahana: Philosophy East and West, Vol. 19, No. 1 (Jan., 1969) pp.. 65-67

Mauryan India by G. M. Bongard-Levin

First published in Russian in 1973, the author incorporated some scholarly feedback for the 1985 English edition, which I'm in the process of reading.

---

Roughly, the book explores from ~600BCE to ~200BCE, with a broad discussion of surrounding social contexts throughout.
  • "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]
