Relativism, Suffering and Beyond: Essays in Memory of Bimal K. Matilal
Relativism, Suffering and Beyond: Essays in Memory of Bimal K. Matilal
Description
From the Jacket:

This collection of essays by a distinguished body of scholars is in memory of the late Bimal K. Matilal, renowned authority in the field of Indian philosophy. Professor Matilal was Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics, Oxford University and fellow at All Souls College, Oxford.

Three main philosophical systems, Buddhism, Vedanta, and Nyaya, are investigate in the book. The essays range from historical subjected such as the earliest Brahmanical reference of Buddhism to highly specialized philosophical expositions like Gadadhara's theory of meaning. The volume throws new light on several enduring themes in Indian philosophy, and also raises fresh issues.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of Indian philosophy, culture, and religion, Buddhist critiques of Hinduism, and Indological studies.

About the Author:

P. Bilimoria is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Deakin University.

J.N. Mohanty is Professor, Department of Philosophy, Temple University, Philadelphia and Woodruff Professor of Philosophy and Asian Studies, Emory University, Georgia.

Experts From Review:

'Lucid, forthright, refreshing, the volume cannot fail to arouse those who turn to philosophy for what Matilal called "nourishment of intellect".'

- Telegraph

'This volume, in memory of one of the most learned scholars of philosophy, is comprised of articles from top scholars…superb scholarship…essays cover a wide range of topics…and do justice to the memory of Bimal K. Matilal.'

- Indian Review of Books

'Matilal brought accurate scholarship and a powerful mind to his work.'

- Hindu

'Matilal's dedication to the life of the mind was legendary…He showed the continued relevance and viability of our classical learning in a modern and changing world.'

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
