Description

Classical Indian schools of philosophy undertake major debates on a variety of issues with the formal aim of attaining a supreme end to existence - liberation from the cycle of lives. This book looks at four conceptions of liberation and the way analytic inquiry and philosophical knowledge are held to lead in its attainment. The central motivation of Indian philosophy - the quest for the Highest Good - is recognised but also situated in the rigorous and analytic philosophical activity of these thinkers.

'This book addresses a central topic in Indian philosophy and religion: the conceptual foundations of liberation and the role of knowledge in its attainment. It is not textually precise and philosophically rigorous. The treatment of both Hindu and Buddhist systems is particularly novel. The systematic coverage of a range of issues us sure to be helpful to advanced students of Indian and comparative philosophy and religion. At the same time, it offers original readings of the great classical texts of the traditions that is likely to both provoke and inform.' - Eliot Deutsch, Professor of Chair of Philosophy, University of Hawaii, Manoa
