This book introduces the vast topic of Indian philosophy. Beginning with a study of the major Upanishads, it surveys the philosophical ideas contained in the Bhagavadgita. After a short excursion into Buddhism, it summarises the salient ideas of the six systems of Indian philosophy: Nyaya, Vaisesika, Samkhya, Yoga, Purva Mimamsa, and Vedanta. It concludes with an introduction to contemporary Indian thought.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Written in an easy-flowing style, Professor Ram Murty's Indian Philosophy: An Introduction can serve as an ideal textbook for undergraduates interested in Indian philosophy. The chapters are well-structured, and the chapter on Modern Thought is especially attractive as it illustrates the application of Indian philosophical concepts in the lives of some contemporary thinkers." - Trichur S. Rukmani, Professor Emeritus and former Chair in Hindu Studies at Concordia University

"Professor Murty's book provides a unique Neo-Vedantic perspective on Indian philosophy in the grand tradition of Vivekananda, Aurobindo, and Radhakrishnan. An appendix includes study questions and a guide for undergraduate writers. The book will also be of interest to advanced students, given its copious detail and skillful interpretative framework. Highly recommended." - Michael W. Myers, Professor of Philosophy and Coordinator of the Religious Studies Program at Washington State University
