Relativism, Suffering and Beyond: Essays in Memory of Bimal K. Matilal
Relativism, Suffering and Beyond: Essays in Memory of Bimal K. Matilal
Description
From the Jacket:

This collection of essays by a distinguished body of scholars is in memory of the late Bimal K. Matilal, renowned authority in the field of Indian philosophy. Professor Matilal was Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics, Oxford University and fellow at All Souls College, Oxford.

Three main philosophical systems, Buddhism, Vedanta, and Nyaya, are investigate in the book. The essays range from historical subjected such as the earliest Brahmanical reference of Buddhism to highly specialized philosophical expositions like Gadadhara's theory of meaning. The volume throws new light on several enduring themes in Indian philosophy, and also raises fresh issues.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of Indian philosophy, culture, and religion, Buddhist critiques of Hinduism, and Indological studies.

About the Author:

P. Bilimoria is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Deakin University.

J.N. Mohanty is Professor, Department of Philosophy, Temple University, Philadelphia and Woodruff Professor of Philosophy and Asian Studies, Emory University, Georgia.

Experts From Review:

'Lucid, forthright, refreshing, the volume cannot fail to arouse those who turn to philosophy for what Matilal called "nourishment of intellect".'

- Telegraph

'This volume, in memory of one of the most learned scholars of philosophy, is comprised of articles from top scholars…superb scholarship…essays cover a wide range of topics…and do justice to the memory of Bimal K. Matilal.'

- Indian Review of Books

'Matilal brought accurate scholarship and a powerful mind to his work.'

- Hindu

'Matilal's dedication to the life of the mind was legendary…He showed the continued relevance and viability of our classical learning in a modern and changing world.'

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
