This is a semiotic study of a corpus of texts that Kumārajīva (344-413 CE), Paramārtha (499~569 CE) and Xuanzang (599~664 CE) transmitted from India to China, featuring a critical reading of the Dazhidu Lun (T1509, Mahā-Prajńāpāramitā-upadeśa-Śāstra), San Wuxing Lun (T1617, Try-asvabhāva-prakara.na), and Guangbai Lun (T1571, Catu.hśataka-śāstra-kārika). Focusing its attention on the Mahāyāna Buddhist notion of samatā, it identifies a Buddhist semiotics which anticipates Derrida's invocation of the notion of the Same in his deconstruction of binary oppositions.
