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)

Book Description Motilal Banarsidass, 2015. Soft cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 4th Edition. The present work is a simpler and shorter account of the authorís previously published Outline of Indian Philosophy. Therefore, in accordance with the aim kept in view in writing, it leaves out many of the details included in the previous one. The difference between them, however, does not consist merely in these omissions: There is also variation in the treatment of some topics, as, for instance, in the first two chapters dealing with early Indian thought. At least in two cases, again, there are important additions. In the earlier book, Buddhism was dealt with in reference to two stages of its growth. There is a third phase, representing the doctrine as it was originally taught by Buddha; and a brief resume of it, as it has been reconstructed by scholars in recent years, also finds a place here. Similarly, the account of the Vedanta has been amplified by the inclusion of the Dvaita system of it. In treating of such a subject as Indian Philosophy, it is difficult to avoid the use of Sanskrit terms; but their number appearing in the body of the work has been reduced as far as possible, and a Glossary is provided to help the reader in finding out their meanings readily. It provides a concise, connected account of Indian philosophy, and interpretation and criticism are provided within the limits of the volume.
