Madyamika Buddhism;The anti-metaphysical Madhyamika or dialectic school (literally, the "middle path", based on the teachings of the great Nagarjuna, emphasises the negation of all possible phenomenal reality through a kind of logical reducto-ad-absurdum, in order to arrive at the ineffable absolute or Void (Shunyata) that is the only Reality.

Madyamika developed out of the earlier Prajnaparamita or "Perfection of Wisdom" Literature; mostly tedious and repetitious writings whose only redeeming factor was their constant exhortations to realise the ultimate nature of reality as Shunya, void or free of all particular characteristics.
