Philosophy in Classical India: An Introduction and Analysis

This original work focuses on the rational principles of Indianphilosophical theory, rather than the mysticism more usuallyassociated with it. Ganeri explores the philosophical projects of anumber of major Indian philosophers and looks into the methods ofrational inquiry deployed within these projects. In so doing, heilluminates a network of mutual reference, criticism, influence andresponse, in which reason is used to call itself into question.This fresh perspective on classical Indian thought unravels newphilosophical paradigms, and points towards new applications forthe concept of reason.
