Book Description

About the Book

Dragonetti and Tola deal in this book with many cases of thematic and methodolgical coincidences between Indian and Western philosophical thought in order to establish that there is an Indian Philosophy with the same expectations and the same weaknesses as those of Western Philosophy. Thus it is possible to conclude that there is not a "Western Thought characterized by rationality and freedom of mind", opposed to an "Indian Thought characterized by religiosity and irrationality", but only a "Universal philosophical Thought". The Method of demonstration is the same resorted to in their books On the Myth of the Opposition between Indian Thought and Western Philosophy (Georg Oims Verlag, 2004), Essays on Indian Philosophy in Comparative Perspective (Georg Oims Verlag, 2004), and Filosofia de la India. Del Veda al Vedanta. El sistema Sciiikhya (in Spanish, Editorial Kairos, Madrid, Spain, 2008 (first edition) and 2010 (second edition): the parallel presentation in their original languages of Indian and Western philosophical texts together with their own translation of them.
