Philosophy and India: Ancestors, Outsiders, and Predecessors

A. Raghuramaraju (Author)

The book attempts to critically assess the contributions of some of the serious academic philosophers of India. It begins by offering Indian solutions to Western problems, offering Advaita as a solution to the Kantian problem of the unknowability of the self and Gandhi’s views of exemplar as a way out for solving the problems surrounding Western moral philosophy. It then views some approaches such as the philosophical assumptions of the Samvada project of Daya Krishna and others that aimed to foster dialogue between modern logicians and traditional Indian pundits to instill new life into contemporary Indian philosophy . It also makes an assessment of the state of philosophy in Indian universities as made by K. Satchidananda Murty. It critically studies the attempts to absorb Buddhism into Hinduism by presenting a critique of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy’s attempts in this regard and S. Radhakrishnan’s thoughts in the matter.
