A Companion to Indian Philosophy

Sures Chandra Banerji (Author)
Synopsis The book is an attempt by the author to fulfil the desire of laymen to have some knowledge about the Indian Philosophy that has brought glory to India. The book begins with a rapid survey of the Sanskrit literature right from the vedic period. This is followed by such topics as are relevant for the study of Indian Philosophy. Prominent authors and their works in this domain have been briefly dealt with, in the book, accompanied by up-to-date bibliographical references. Prominent doctrines and tenets of the different schools of philosophy have also been briefly explained. A chapter has been devoted to the maxims, used by later writers and commentators, to explain philosophical matters. These maxims are interesting as they are based on experiences and observations relating mainly, to folk life. Finally, a glossary of technical terms and jargon has been added in the book. The book, useful to laymen as well as scholars alike, is a companion helping the reader in his odyssey through the intricacies and abstruseness of the different systems of Indian Philosophy.
