Mind, Language and World: The Collected Essays of Bimal Kirshna Matilal

Jonardon Ganeri (Editor)
Synopsis A renowned authority in the field of Indian studies, Bimal Krishna Matilal was one of the leading exponents of the philosophical and religious thought of classical India. Bringing together Matilal’s huge body of articles, this volume includes previously unpublished essays and reflects the extraordinary range of Matilal’s philosophical interests. The unifying motif of Matilal’s work is the study of rational traditions in Indian thought. With his ability to span the divide between the Indian and Western intellectual traditions, he brought contemporary techniques of analytical philosophy to bear upon the issues raised in classical Indian philosophy and, conversely, to highlight the relevance of Indian thought in the modern world. From analyses of the arguments of the classical philosophers to an evaluation of the role of philosophy in classical Indian society, from critique of western perceptions of Indian philosophy to reflection on the thought of Indian intellectuals like Bankimchandra and Radhakrishnan, the essays collected here examine every aspect of the relationship between philosophical theory and Indian thought. The companion volume, Ethics and Epics, deals with Dharma, Rationality and Moral Dilemmas; Epics and ethics; pluralism, relativism and Interaction between cultures; Ideas from the East; and concepts in Indian religions. This book will be a useful and interesting read for scholars and students and a valuable addition to social science and philosophy libraries.
