9781440052446: A History of Indian Philosophy, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

India was a concrete unity of manyJ. sided developments in art, architecture, literature, religion, morals, and science so far as it was understood in those days. But the most important achievement of Indian thought was philosophy. It was regarded as the goal of all the highest practical and theoretical activities, and it indicated the point of unity amidst all the apparent diversities which the complex growth of culture over a vast area inhabited by different peoples produced. It is not in the history of foreign invasions, in the rise of independent kingdoms at different times, in the empires of this or that great monarch that the unity of India is to be sought. It is essentially one of spiritual aspirations and obedience to the law of the spirit, which were regarded as superior to every thing else, and it has outlived all the political changes through which India passed. The Greeks, the Huns, theS cythians, the Pathans and theM oguls who occupied the land and controlled the political machinery never ruled the minds of the people, for these political events were like hurricanes or the changes of season, mere phenomena of a natural or physical order which never affected the spiritual integrity of Hindu culture. If after a passivity of some centuries India is again going to become creative it is mainly on account of this fundamental unity of her progress and civilisation and not for anything that she may borrow from other countries. It is therefore indispensably necessary for all those who wish to appreciate the significance and potentialities of Indian culture that they should properly understand the history of Indian philosophical thought which is the nucleus round which all that is best and highest in India has grown. Much harm has already been done by the circulation of opinions that the culture and philosophy of India was dreamy and abstract. It is there

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is the first volume of Surendranath Dasgupta s five volume work on the history of Indian philosophy. Starting with the earliest movements each philosophy is not just described but explained in detail and shown in its place in history. This includes vedic thought, yoga, buddhism and many others. Professor Dasgupta provides an argument that philosophy was the highest calling in India to the extent that it rivalled or even surpassed the ancient Greeks and provided unity across a large and diverse country. Certainly his writing will provide a radical change in world view to anyone unaccustomed to viewing India as a philosophical powerhouse. This book is written in clear language, but this is not a simple topic as it covers a huge range of thought and philosophies. The reader should be prepared for an education.
