Publisher's Summary

India has perhaps the oldest living philosophical tradition in the world. Though both Buddhism and Jainism began in India, its primary influence is the Vedic tradition. The Vedas are the fundamental Hindu scriptures and the basis of the six systems of Indian philosophy. Hindu philosophy affirms an ultimate or universal reality, but it is also individualistic, embracing many alternatives or paths to one reality. Also characteristic is the belief in reincarnation, and in karma, the law of moral causation.

The World of Philosophy series presents the questions, interests, and worldviews of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations, in understandable language, give you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Don't miss other titles in the World of Philosophy series.

    "too basic"

    this is an intro to only the very basic philosophies and they too are not completely covered.
    what is more, the listener is unnecessarily confused by the convolutions.
    but it is better than nothing

    "Excelent overview"

    A very good introductory summary. Created more questions than answers, which is excellent. I am now much more interested in studying Indian philosophy. The narration was good, the organization is good too.
