The History of Indian Philosophy is a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the movements and thinkers that have shaped Indian philosophy over the last three thousand years. An outstanding team of international contributors provide fifty-eight accessible chapters, organised into three clear parts:
- knowledge, context, concepts
- philosophical traditions
- engaging and encounters: modern and postmodern.
This outstanding collection is essential reading for students of Indian philosophy. It will also be of interest to those seeking to explore the lasting significance of this rich and complex philosophical tradition, and to philosophers who wish to learn about Indian philosophy through a comparative lens.
'This book is an outstanding achievement of scholarship, breadth of representation, historical nuance, and wide accessibility. The volume contains key articles across a range of areas in mind, knowledge, and reality. This book will be an important resource for both specialists and generalists of Indian philosophy as well as those in Western philosophy seeking to gain an understanding of the vast traditions and complex arguments that make up Indian philosophy.'
Anand Vaidya, San Jose State University, USA
'This meticulously crafted volume, exhaustive in its historical reach and judicious in its choice of topics, promises to become an indispensable resource for both scholars and students of the Indian philosophical tradition.'
Saranindranath Tagore, National University of Singapore, Singapore
