About this title


"Indian philosophy, till now, has been generally presented in a historical manner and in such a way as if there were no problems about it. The book challenges this way of presentation both at the general as well as specific levels. It starts with a plea for a new history of philosophy in India and ends with a reply to two controversies - one relating to vedanta and the other to nyaya. It will help in making us aware of the need for a fresh look at the philosophical traditions of India, so that they may become alive once again and may be pursued with renewed vigour."
