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.'

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
