Indian Philosophy by Sue Hamilton, the perfect gift for anyone who wishes to sort out their karma and nirvana (The Independent Weekend Review 02/06/01)

Présentation de l'éditeur

India has a long, rich, and diverse tradition of philosophical thought, spanning some two and a half millennia and encompassing several major religious traditions. This Very Short Introduction emphasizes the diversity of Indian thought, and is structured around six schools which have achieved classic status. Sue Hamilton explores how the traditions have attempted to understand the nature of reality in terms of an inner or spiritual quest, and introduces distinctively Indian concepts such as karma and rebirth. She also shows how Indian thinkers have understood issues of reality and knowledge -- issues which are also an important part of the Western philosophical tradition. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An amazing little book 6 avril 2011
Format:Broché
I am a big fan of the entire "Very Short Introduction' series, and have read several dozens of them. However, even in that field of mostly outstanding introductory books, this one stands out. I cannot give it enough praise. This is an eminently readable yet extremely intellectually stimulating book. It manages to convey the full richness and subtlety of Indian philosophical tradition, or at least as much of it as can fit in this format. Hamilton takes us through the historical development of the Indian philosophical thought, linking each new development to the previous ones, and emphasizes its significance. This is the first book that has convinced me that there are highly sophisticated philosophical traditions that have emerged outside of the Greco-Roman world. It would be of interest to anyone interested in philosophy, and not just for those interested in Indian thought. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Very Useful Overview of REAL Indian Philosophy 29 octobre 2004
Par Andrew V. Jeffery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Many of the negative reviews of this EXTREMELY USEFUL overview are highly sectarian. They typically confuse the general stream of Indian religous thought with parts of classical Indian thought that might be especially of interest to Western-trained PHILOSOPHERS. Philosophers and academic philosophy students comprise Hamilton's intended audience, and, for that audience, Hamilton could not have done a better job in the space this series afforded her. For what it is, I could not recommend anything on the market more highly than Hamilton's book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A reliable and readable introduction 22 septembre 2008
Par Peter Reeve - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This excellent entry in the VSI series would serve as a good introduction to philosophy in general, as it takes pains to define terms like metaphysics, epistemology, exegesis and soteriology, basic terminology that might be new to the non-specialist. It is a scholarly but very readable account, with useful illustrations.

In the nineteenth century, specific schools of thought were presented to the West as 'Hinduism' or 'Indian philosophy', and these views - polytheistic and monistic - are very often still regarded as representative. This is rather like presenting Lutheranism as 'European religion' and Existentialism as 'European philosophy'. Another excellent book in this series - Hinduism, by Kim Knott - corrects the first misapprehension, and this present book corrects the second.

Philosophy and religion have combined in Indian thought in a way that differs from the Western tradition - at least, since Kant and the Enlightenment. Thus, a work like this invites us to approach philosophical enquiry in a new way, or at least to recognize an alternative approach.

Like all the authors in this series, Hamilton has the problem of encapsulating a vast subject into a small space. In Chapter 1, the author describes the selections she has made and why she has made them - in particular, why she chose to exclude Jainism. The book concentrates on the classical period beginning in the 5th century BC (interestingly, a history of Western philosophy would likely begin in the same era, with the same backward glance at the religious and mythical traditions from which it evolved). The 6 classical darsanas are mentioned, and enough authors and texts are referenced to give you plenty of scope for further study, if you wished.

Highly recommended.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Mentions Bhagavad Gita on Numerous Occasions 12 avril 2003
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Contrary to what another reviewer wrote, the book mentions the Bhagavad Gita as one of the canonical texts of certain Indian transitions. Prof. Hamilton warns against taking the positions of a particular strand of Indian thought and saying "this is true Hinduism."
Indeed, she questions whether Hinduism is a useful concept for discussing the historic traditions of India. Various forms of what we call Hinduism are very much at odds with each other and have different sources for their beliefs. For some the Vedantas are the core of Indian spirituality, for others it is the Gita.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 well organized 8 janvier 2011
Par Hydra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The strength of this book is its organization and clarity, qualities very hard to come by in this field. An excellent introduction, not for someone looking for religion, but for someone looking to discover the depth and diversity of philosophical thought that developed in India over a 4 thousand year period. Despite its "very short" length one should read it slowly. This is not for a believer in Buddhism or Hinduism who wants some spiritual reading. Excellent nonetheless.
