Reflexions On Indian Philosophy
Reflexions On Indian Philosophy
Description
About the Book

This work is a collection of some papers wherein the author has made a comparative study of the concepts like God, self, time, space, matter, substance and quality, Law of Karman etc., as found in different systems of Indian philosophy. In the view of the author, most of these concepts have not been properly explained by-the propunders themselves or have been mis-interpreted either by the followers or by the critics. In the present work, he has ventured to offer his own interpretations to unveil the real and original nature of these concepts. He has tried also to present his own observations on these concepts, which bear evidence to his original thoughts. His interpretations and observations further point to an underlying unity of thought among the different systems of Indian philosophy.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
