This book provides a concise, connected account of Indian philosophy, and interpretation and criticism are provided within the limits of the volume. An introductory chapter summarizes Vedic religion and philosophy, and 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 good 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; "To the non-specialist who wishes to know something of the many philosophical systems evolved by the penetrating Indian intellect down the centuries from Vedic days it should prove of considerable value." Aberdeen Press and Journal; "The treatment throughout is lucid, precise and authentic. A book that can be recommended to the general public." Adyar Library Bulletin; "....the author has attempted to give in this work a general outline of Indian Philosophy, confining himself to its essential principles..." The Vedanta Kesari" --Liverpool Daily Post
