Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies, Volume XI: Advaita Vedanta from 800 to 1200

Karl H. Potter (Editor) Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies

This is an endeavour by an international team of scholars to present the contents of Indian Philosophical texts to a wider public than has hitherto been possible. It attempts to provide a definitive summary of current knowledge about each of the systems of classical Indian philosophy. Each volume consists of an extended analytical essay together with summaries of every extant work of the system for which a summarizer can be found. Volumes include a Bibliography, a Glossary, and treatments of Nyayavaisesika, Samkhya, Yoga, Purvamimamsa, various Vedanta systems and certain philosophically important sects of Saivism and Vaisnavism, as well as Jain and Buddhist philosophy. This present volume is the second volume of this Encyclopedia devoted to Advaita Vedanta. It takes up the history of that movement from where Volume Three of this Encyclopedia left off, and covers the literature from Vacaspati Misra in the tenth century to Citsukha scholars from around the world, both living and dead. In the introduction the Editor reviews a contentious issue among contemporary Advaita scholars concerning the accuracy of the interpretations of Samkara’s intentions found in the writings of the various schools (Bhamati, and Suresvara’s) that developed subsequent to Sankara’s lifetime.
