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.
