This section summarizes three main conclusions about the Buddhist philosophical enterprise: 1. Assessing different parts of Buddhist literature according to the question whether this is ‘what the Buddha really taught’ is not very helpful. 2. Buddhist philosophy is intricately bound up with the performance of cognitive exercises or meditative techniques. 3. It is important to engage with the problems and concepts the Indian Buddhist texts are concerned with in a systematic manner.
