I'm rather interested in Tibetan Buddhism's reflexive understanding of other Indian philosophical schools and each others, but i'm unsure as to how or where to approach the subject matter.
Hopkin's Maps of the Profound seems like something right up my alley, if a bit from the Gelug perspective.

The difference between schools is over exaggerated. If you look at the lineage lines of transmissions they go through a lot of the same people. And then practically, you look at the lineage holders and they've received teachings from people from different schools. If there was some big conflict in the instructions they wouldn't be able to do that.
