P.T. Raju (The Builders of Indian Philosophy Series)
P.T. Raju (The Builders of Indian Philosophy Series)
Description
From the Jacket:

This monograph intends to highlight Professor P.T. Raju's contribution to Indian philosophy in general and Advaita in particular. Raju is regarded as one of the architects and disseminators of Indian philosophy in the contemporary philosophical scene. This work covers a wide range of philosophical issues discussed by Raju in his writings concerning the nature of Indian philosophy, Comparative philosophy, and Advaita. His corpus of writings exhibits the richness of Indian philosophy, Comparative philosophy, and Advaita. His corpus of writings exhibits the richness of Indian Philosophy, Culture and heritage. His approach to Indian philosophy is an eye opener to those who look down upon it as a form of religious occultism and mysticism. Raju vindicates that there is as much metaphysics, epistemology and logic in Indian philosophy as it is found in its Western counterpart. His commitment to Advaita is not a blind one. He is fully convinced that the arguments advanced by the Advaitins in support of their position are not dogmatic but logical in their nature. Raju critically examines other systems of philosophy, both Eastern and Western, from the standpoint of Advaita.

About the Author:

K. Srinivas obtained his doctoral degree in Philosophy from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi in 1983. Currently, he is a Reader in Philosophy at Sri Aurobindo school of Eastern and Western Thought, Pondicherry University. His fields of Interest are: Epistemology (Eastern and Western), Analytical Philosophy, and Indian Philosophy. His other published works are An Evaluation of A.J. Ayer's Logical Positivism (New Delhi, 1990) and A Dictionary of Philosophy (New Delhi, 1993).

About the Series:

The Philosophical concepts and categories associated with Sankhya, Vaisesika, carvaka, Jaina, and Bauddha systems are as old as the Vedas. However, the formulation of different systems must have taken place later on. Unfortunately, we do not know about the historical development of these ideas prior to the systematic presentation of them in the form of sutras (aphorisms) which serve as the basic text for each of these schools. Because of the brevity of the sutras, it is difficult to understand the sutra-work without the help of a commentary. Then came the commentaries and sub-commentaries of various kinds on the texts, all of them being interconnected starting from the basic sutra text. Texts, both expository and polemical, were written defending the basic doctrines of each system and also criticizing the views of other systems; and these texts are also commentaries.

A commentary is much more than an exegesis. It is also creative while doing the work of interpretation. The text taken up for interpretation has a context or horizon of its own; the interpreter, too, has a horizon of his/her own. The interaction between the two horizons is a basic element in every kind of interpretation. This interaction between the two horizons, which goes on whenever a text is explained, "enriches" the text and makes it both purportful and purposive. So a commentary is as much original as the text it is commenting on. Indian philosophy was built and developed, strengthened and shaped by the commentarial tradition.

Contemporary Indian philosophy, academic as well as non-academic, have enriched the tradition in several ways. Like classical commentators, they are "builders" of Indian philosophy in the two areas of pure and applied philosophy. The monographs in this series called "Builders of Indian Philosophy" are intended to elucidate and highlight their contribution to Indian Philosophy.
