About The Book
This volume deliberates on the "essentials" of Indian philosophy allowing one to peruse, analyse and absorb its crux. It has set its focus on the history of Indian philosophy starting from the course of Vedic religion, its transition to the prominent systems, its intake from the non-Vedic schools of thought, and the details and analysis of Nyaya-Vaiaeeika, Saukhya-Yoga, Parva-Mamausa, and Vedanta from both an absolutistic and a theistic approach.

This is an old book- quite out of date both from the point of view of our current knowledge and current needs.These academics writing on our philosophy blindly follow the western writers, who have no regard for or knowledge of the practical aspects of our darsanas which are living systems, and not mere vain academic dispute or speculation as in the West. They have learnt nothing from our own modern masters like Swami Vivekanada or Sri Aurobindo. They have no respect for our living tradition which they do not know first hand. It is the unfortunate university student who has to read the book if it is prescribed- he has no choice. The general reader has much better options now
