  • Description

    An Introduction to Indian Philosophy, termed by Srila Prabhupada as 'very authoritative', while introducing the reader to the spirit, vast ocean of knowledge and outlook of Indian philosophy, also helps him to grasp thoroughly the central ideas.  Philosophy, in its widest etymological sense, means 'love of knowledge'. It tries to search for knowledge of himself, the world and God, and describes the Indian way of life as we know it.  Indian philosophy denotes the philosophical speculations of all Indian thinkers, ancient or modern, Hindus or non-Hindus, theists or atheists.  Some believe 'Indian philosophy' to be synonymous with 'Hindu philosophy', however, this would be true only if the word 'Hindu' were taken in the geographical sense of 'Indian'.  But if 'Hindu' means the followers of a particular religious faith known as Hinduism, the supposition would be wrong and misleading.  The authors have, with considerable merit, highlighted the significance of Indian views in terms of modern Western thought.  An Introduction to Indian Philosophy is a seminal work covering topics as varied as the Carvaka, Jain, Vaisesika, Mimamsa, Buddha, Sankhya Systems, amongst others.

    An Introduction to Indian Philosophy - DM Datta & SC Chatterjee

    Since the day (1939 - University of Calcutta, India) this book found its publication , it has its own group of readers, which led to good number of editions and reprints. Now, in the hands of a private publisher, it has found a new look at an affordable price.

    This was the textbook my teacher suggested me at the UG level. Today, I myself being a teacher, suggest this book for my students. Reason is simple. This is more than a mere text book. Many books in the same area by different authors h...

    Fantabulous

    Philosophy, for an engineer is a kind of esoteric subject. Also, it's a subject, which in modern times, is not even remotely linked to sciences and engineering.

    However, it is always surprising, that if we try to understand the genesis of science and engineering, the origin always lies in philosophy. and, this holds across all the cultures from ancient INDIA to GREECE.

    Being an indian, and from a moderate conservative household, i was brought up on a staple diet of the INDIA-which was once...

    Brilliant

    This book is a classic no doubt; but the advantage of this edition is that it is published by Motilal Banarsidass. Earlier edition by another reputed publisher is ridiculous. Paragraphs after paragraphs are missing. But this one is excellent. I would very highly recommend readers to use Motilal Banarsidass edition to get full benefits of the wisdom contained in the book.
