    Description

    Indian Philosophy (Volume 1) is the first of the two brilliant volumes on Indian philosophy during the Epic and Vedic periods.

    Summary Of The Book

    Indian Philosophy (Volume 1) is a part of the classic two-volume set that surveys the philosophical landscape in India during the Epic and Vedic periods. It covers the Indian schools of thought from the days of the Rig Veda to Ramanuja. This comprehensive survey turns back the clock to search for pearls of wisdom hidden in ancient Indian philosophical texts in a hope to find answers to the burning issues of our time.

    Back in the day, the Indian philosophers and thinkers asked a number of illuminating questions, one of the most important of them pertaining to the utpatti (origin) and jnapti (apprehension) of pramanya (truth). At the heart of almost all Indian philosophies lay the three cornerstone concepts of atman (self or soul), karma (work), and moksha (liberation). The incredible depth of these philosophies is captured in Indian Philosophy (Volume 1).

    The first volume elaborates on the myriad features that characterize Indian philosophy. The introduction to this new edition is written by the eminent philosopher J. N. Mohanty, who is an emeritus philosophy professor at Temple University. Both volumes 1 and 2 will appeal greatly to scholars, students of Indian philosophy, religious studies, and history, and general readers with a penchant for surveying philosophical thought.

    Indian Philosophy (Volume 1) was received with great adulation and cheer. It was appreciated for its elaborate treatment of Indian philosophy. The book can be read by anyone from an undergraduate student studying philosophy to a scholar already well-versed in this field.

    One of the Best Books for an Introduction to the Indian Philosophy.

    This is a very good and concise book for those interested in Indian Philosophy, but don't know where to start. Of the many books I have tried, this is one of the best ones for a glimpse of the Indian Philosophy. Those interested in philosophy should indeed read this book. the writing is as vivid and powerful as it gets. A philosophy lover will find this volume as well as the next volume simply unputdownable.

    EXCELLENT BOOK

    ITS AN EXCELLENT BOOK HAVING 600 PAGES. I MUST CONFESS THE ENGLISH IS HARD. IT HAS COVERED VERY WELL THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDIAN SPIRITUAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHTS STARTING FROM THE ARYANS AND RIG VEDA TO JAINISM AND BUDDHISM. THERE ARE LOT OF CONCEPTS AND ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOME PREVIOUS IDEAS ABOUT IT THEN ONLY YOU CAN GRASP IT FULY. I HAVE COMPLETED ONE READING BUT I FEEL I HAVE TO GIVE ANOTHER READING TO FULLY UNDERSTAND IT. NEVERTHELESS ITS AN EXCELLENT AND ALL ENCOMPASSING BOOK.

    Magnum Opus

    Book begins with introduction to history of Vedas. First few chapters leads to boredom. But as you progress from Fourth chapter it raises your eyebrows from sleep. and takes your ride to eternal and ultimate consciousness of our ancestors which I am loving the most.

    Dont read this book

    This book is extremely long. It is meant for those who are doing Ph.d. in philosophy. This book is not meant for ordinary readers. It has so many contradictory and technical words. It has so many opinions. It is a definitely a NO NO for those who want to read it light. The book contains so many opinions and theories. The words used are extremely technical for a comman reader to understand.

    The book is those for who are pursuing career in philosophy. It is exactly a text book material.

    read for intellectuals

    nice book by the great philosopher-cum-former president of India. Undoubtedly this will be a good read for mature readers, but please don't mistake this for a text-book. The binding is bad-makes reading difficult
