Critical Studies on the Noble Eightfold Path?

Hello Dear friends,

What are some good critical studies on the Noble Eightfold Path that are helpful to you? I recently found a good study on the Noble Eightfold Path that I am reading in R. M. L. Gethin’s The Buddhist Path to Awakening in Ch. 6. Are there any other critical analysis of ariyo atthangiko maggo that you know of?

Peace and Metta


Pardon my ignorance, maybe this cannot be called a critical study, but these are my usual ‘before bedtime’ reads on the topic…
