9780041810233: Essentials of Indian Philosophy

This text provides a concise, connected account of Indian philosophy. An introductory chapter summarizes Vedic religion and philosophy, then Indian thought is considered in chapters dealing respectively with the early post-Vedic period and the age of the systems. A brief historical survey accompanies each natural division of the subject, in addition to an exposition of its theory of knowledge, ontology and practical teaching. A glossary of Sanskrit terms and a subject index are provided.

About the Author:

The author has simplified without distorting and left no fundamental point uncovered. To present within the compass of two hundred pages the whole story of Hindu philosophy demands not only a sense of proportion but also gift of proper selection.

Review:

''The author has simplified without distorting and left no fundamental point uncovered.'' --Liverpool Daily Post

''The treatment throughout is lucid, precise and authentic. A book that can be recommended to the general public.'' --Adyar library bulletin

''To present within the compass of two hundred pages the whole story of Hindu philosophy demands not only a sense of proportion but also a gift of proper selection. Both these characteristics are prominent in this book... The contents of the book fully justify the claim that it offers a concise and connected account of Hindu philosophy, providing interpretation and criticism with limits.'' - --The Guardian (Madras)
