This is a comprehensive exposition of the Evolution of the Samkhya School of Thought. The school owes its origin to the dualistic teaching of the Upanishads, and passing through various stages (both theistic and atheistic) it has assumed its present classical form. The Samkhya concepts and idea are present not only in the Upanishads but also in the Mahabharata, the Gita, the Puranas, the books on Ayurveda etc. and this shows that as a philosophical school, Samkhya has exerted a very forceful and profound influence on the life of man in almost all the fields of Indian intellectual history. The author has successfully brought all these texts into relation with each other and has traced and connected the different lines of Samkhya thought in a very commendable manner. The book is thoroughly documented with bibliography and index.
