Materialism in Indian Thought
Materialism in Indian Thought
Description
About the Book

This is a unique research work of distinctive quality based on original Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrit sources. The book not only highlights the neglected features of India thought of the early pre-systematic period but also presents a careful, critical and concepts and doctrines of the full-fledged Indian philosophy. The book also exposes some of the established misconceptions about Indian philosophy that, "It is essentially spiritualistic" and the like, made current by some 'great' orientalists with ulterior motives and accepted uncritically by the historians of Indian philosophy. Thus, the book maintains, that like life and culture, the Indian thought is equally rich and variegated decrying the tendency to consider all other schools of thought as so many steps towards Vedanta. The book upholds that even for Materialism we need not seek inspiration elsewhere, as we not only have a system of materialism of our own in the Carvaka (Lokayata) system but it also plays a role of considerable important in the other thought-system.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
